Agronomist & Soil Scientist
“I believe that the work we are doing is more important now than ever due to the pressures that farmers are facing each day. Seeing farmers make strides in their understanding of sustainability and achieving goals fuels my passion for my work. This makes it all worth it.”
Agronomist and soil scientist Megan Moore joined the Sustainable Environmental Consultants (SEC) team in January 2022. In this role, Megan works with the EcoPractices® team. She is responsible for managing agronomic and livestock data, generating reports, providing client support and recommendations, and utilizing a variety of precision agriculture software to aid in sustainability projects.
Growing up on her family’s pig and sheep farm, agriculture has always been a large part of Megan’s life. She knew she wanted to pursue a career that combines her passions for agronomy, sustainability and farmer relations. Megan was drawn to SEC for the diverse work with producers large and small. She is eager and excited to be a part of helping farmers, ranchers and producers all over the country gain a better understanding of how their operations effect the environment.
Megan attended Iowa State University (ISU) where she earned a bachelor’s degree in agronomy. While at ISU, she worked as a lab assistant in the organic horticulture department where she performed various field trials and data collection of horticulture crops. She has also gained hands-on experience through internships at Key Cooperative, Marion County Soil and Water District, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.
Megan is an active member of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and the Iowa Soybean Association. In her free time, she enjoys working on her family’s farm, attending livestock shows, exploring the outdoors with her dog, traveling, reading and spending time with loved ones.
