Foundation & Grants Manager
As Foundation & Grants Manager, Megan works to raise awareness and funds for the Center. She is an advocate for preserving wild landscapes and protecting wildlife populations through science-based strategies. Megan is passionate about connecting organizations with enthusiastic supporters who are eager to make a difference in their community and across the globe, believing that the solution to connectivity doesn’t belong to any one entity; rather the actions of different partners knit together result in meaningful change. She helps synthesize complex connectivity conservation findings into simple concepts, demonstrating the Center’s impact locally, nationally, and globally.
Megan’s career has been focused on non-profit management and fundraising, primarily in global health and refugee resettlement, while advocating for climate change and environmental protections in her free time. She specializes in systems thinking, building multi-year fundraising plans, and communal impact. In her free time, Megan can be found running, hiking, reading, or exploring the outdoors with her family.
