Morgan is the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC's) former assistant, conservation biology for southwestern Ontario.

Morgan grew up on a farm in Norfolk County, which enabled her to learn the importance of the environment and conserving what is has to offer early in life. Most of her childhood was spent outdoors, which garnered her interest in working in the conservation field. She graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an HBA in Environmental Studies and a minor in Global Studies, with special interest in GIS. Morgan has been fortunate to work in the conservation industry within her hometown for over six years. She could not be any happier to be making a positive impact to her hometown for future generations.

Apart from her conservation work Morgan enjoys boating on the shores of Lake Erie in the summer months, travelling, attending concerts, cooking (and eating), and being with her dog Dolce.
