Meet Megan

Megan and her husband are dry land wheat farmers. The wheat that we grow is processed for seed, which we sell to local farmers and wholesalers alike. As a part of their business, she runs a trucking division to transport our grain across the state. Their farm has full-time employees, which has given me significant insight into the difficulty of running a business in our state. Megan’s experience as a small business owner and entrepreneur has helped me to understand the challenges and obstacles to owning and operating a business in our state. As small business owners, megan is responsible for compliance, human resources, and finances, even as the burden of over-regulation has increased the cost of doing business in California.

Until 2012, Megan was a co-owner of Big Valley Nursery in Bieber.

Megan served as President of the Big Valley Joint Unified School Board for one term, where I grew my passion for rural education. She advocated for, and continue to support, access to AP and enrichment classes so that every student can achieve their full academic potential.
