Megan's passion for Agriculture began in a high school Ag class where she got her first opportunity to raise an animal for the Fair. Her experience with FFA went beyond raising livestock. She also competed at the state level in the FFA Creed Contest, learned important life skills through the Farm Credit West Loan Analysis Contest, and delved into the world of parliamentary procedure as a regional officer for the Ventura County FFA region. Megan would also go on to serve as the Historian for the Ventura County Junior Fair Board as well. In her last year of raising an animal for the Ventura County Fair, she met her future husband – also an FFA member participating in Fair Week. Years later, they'd have children who would fall in love with the Fair too, first by entering their art projects, Lego creations, table settings, and baked goods in the Youth Building and later, when they were old enough, raising livestock.
A product of FFA, Megan knows first-hand the importance of youth Agriculture programs and the life skills and lessons they provide. She is passionate in her drive to support the next generation in local Agriculture.
Professionally, Megan works in the digital marketing space, with a focus on creating and curating content for major national brands, a variety of organizations, and retail clients alike.
