Hi! My name is Megan. I was born and raised in Washington and grew up loving skiing and the outdoors. Some of my favorite memories are ski trips to Park City with my parents, Mt. Bachelor with the grandparents, and weekend rides at our home mountain the good ‘ol Ski Acres - IYKYK. I left Washington to go to college in California, and then moved to Nevada for a few years. I moved back to Washington in 2013 and jumped right back into weekend rides at my home mountain. Washington is and always will be the place I call home!

I have been working at evo since 2016 and am so grateful for all the opportunities. I started working in our warehouse in receiving and shipping and then worked my way to the merchandising department which gave me the opportunity to integrate my passions as our Accessories and Camp Buyer. It truly is a beautiful thing to work for a company that you are passionate about and that feels like family. You will still find me every weekend at my home mountain with my husband Beau and our daughter Baker.
