Meagan’s media journey began in 2009, initially crafting written and photographic
content for her high school sports teams. Pursuing her passion further, she studied

distinguished herself as the Editor in Chief of AgriLeader Magazine. During this time,
she also honed her photography skills, laying the groundwork for her future endeavors.
Now with over 15 years of experience, Meagan has evolved her storytelling, particularly
in the realm of outdoor media. Transitioning from her beginnings in high school sports,
she has become a published writer and acclaimed wildlife and hunting photographer.

her multifaceted skill set to drive impactful campaigns for her marketing clients.
In 2018, Meagan co-founded Bar MC Media, LLC alongside her now husband, Brandon

through a dynamic visual medium.
Meagan's journey is a testament to her dedication, versatility, and passion for visual
storytelling in the outdoors. With her wealth of experience and diverse skill set, she is
poised to make significant contributions to any professional outdoor media association.
