Megan brings her passion for good food and building relationships with food producers to the Non-GMO Project as the Business Development Manager. Megan was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and has always had a deep connection with food. Growing up, she watched her parents grow vegetable gardens, plant fruit trees, go fishing for salmon, and pull in pots of Dungeness crabs throughout the summer. These foundations of where food comes from stuck with Megan and instilled a passion to work with food.
Megan’s career has been in the natural and organic retail industry, running community outreach programs, in-store vendor programs, and culinary programs. She built relationships with food producers to create their in-store presence and recognition with customers. She did this through in-store events, cooking classes, industry trade shows, and community gatherings. Her favorite part of her career has been watching small local producers build their brand, build their recognition, and grow into flourishing businesses.
Outside of work, Megan enjoys cooking for friends and family, hiking with her dog Bilbo, and taking naps in her hammock.
