Megan grew up in a family that enjoyed the outdoors together. She went turkey hunting with her dad for the first time at the age of 6, and fell in love with the quiet and beauty of an early morning out in the woods. Growing up, her family spent time doing things like hiking and camping together on parts of the Appalachian Trail and in the Blue Ridge mountains, hunting, or helping her grandmother harvest and can vegetables from her farm garden. Megan has fond memories of going on walks through the woods with her dad, mom, and brothers when she was young, looking for the tiny treasures that are hidden there to be found when you stop to look (a camouflaged turtle shell, a patch of bright flowers, a natural terrarium grown up in a discarded jar, etc.). In more recent years, Megan has grown to love traveling and getting to explore God’s amazing creation in other parts of the world. She’s had the fun opportunity to explore rain forests and cloud forests in Costa Rica, hike through the Andes mountains with her brother in Peru, enjoy snorkeling in places like the Red Sea, and go canyoning with her husband in Jordan. She hopes to pass on a love for the outdoors to her daughter.
