Megan Vhay graduated from the University of Maine, Orono, in 2016 with a BS in Wildlife Ecology. Her adventures working as a field technician include mapping invasive plant species in eastern Washington, searching for goshawks in southeastern Idaho, and trapping wild turkeys in northwest Oklahoma. Megan is interested in human dimensions of wildlife management and believes that good communication between natural resource professionals and the public is the strongest foundation for the future of wild places. Megan plans to pursue her master’s degree in a wildlife-related field in the near future, with the goal of becoming a wildlife biologist at the state or federal level. She hopes to continue writing in whichever occupation she finds herself. In the meantime, Megan continues to seek wildlife field technician work, write, and go for walks in the woods with her Bernese Mountain Dog
