An avid hiker and backpacker, Morgan’s adventures with Tahoe Rim Trail started many years ago. Now, as the Director of Operations, Morgan gets to enjoy the Tahoe Rim Trail full time and is responsible for the development, coordination and management of trail operations including trail building, trail maintenance, volunteer recruitment and support, and program administration. Morgan is a native of Northern California and comes to the Tahoe Rim Trail Association most recently from the Sierra Nevada Alliance where she directed the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership which places twenty-seven full time AmeriCorps volunteers throughout the Sierra Nevada each year to conduct watershed restoration, watershed education, and volunteer recruitment and support. Morgan has also worked with various conservation organizations including the Student Conservation Association, Northwest Youth Corps, and the National Park Service as well as a stint as a professional ski patroller. Morgan holds a B.A. in Sociology and Global Peace and Security from U.C. Santa Barbara. During her free time, she can be found taking advantage of the snowy playground out her backdoor, attempting to cook something gourmet, or lacing up her boots for her next backpacking adventure.
