Megan moved from Cache Valley, Utah in May of 2016 to Dallas, Texas for job growth after graduating from Utah State University with her bachelors degree in Animal Science. She has had a passion for animals ever since she was a little girl when she first brought home her first orange tabby kitten named Lucky, that she ‘stole’ from her uncle. He said she could take him home, but he didn’t mean right then! Lucky lived a very happy long life until he was 18 years old (holy cow!) After she graduated high school it was a no brainer that she wanted to work with animals, so she applied to the only university in Utah with an Animal Science program, Utah State University. She spent a lot of time with large animals on the experimental farm in Cache Valley where she got to learn first hand how to halter break a calf! She worked with sheep the summer of 2015 for her undergraduate project where she got to be a part of ‘The Large Animal Arthritis model’ with Dr. Mason for her undergraduate project where they worked on trying to find a cure for arthritis. That same summer she volunteered at the Cache Valley Humane Society where she fell in love with a black cat that she & her husband named Calypso, and later that year they added to their family by adopting a brown tabby named Sassafras (Sassy for short) from the same shelter. After she graduated in May 2016, she started a job in Dallas as an Veterinary Technician at a specialty practice in the oncology department, where she spent a lot of time with dogs & cats. At Second Chance she enjoys helping clients find their future forever pets, training volunteers, and working with the animals.
