It's time for a different approach to the same problems that Wyoming has had for decades. It's time for Wyoming to F.A.C.E. IT at home first.
Meghan Jensen was born in Billings, MT and returned home to Casper, WY in 1983. Meghan's father worked in the oilfield which eventually led the family to Gillette, WY. In Gillette, Meghan and her younger brother participated in 4-H and baseball while learning how to maintain a small farm. The family moved back to Casper in the early 90's where Meghan stayed until 2007 when she left and tried to live in North Carolina and Arizona. In less than a year, Meghan moved back to Wyoming to live in Rock Springs where she currently lives.
For most of her career, Meghan has spent time managing quick service restaurants and as head cook for her school district. In 2017 Meghan graduated from Western Wyoming Community College with an associates of arts in political science with many courses centered around secondary education. For the last 6 years, Meghan and her husband have owned and operated a small concrete company.
Meghan's mother was always active in the community they lived in and brought her to meetings or taught courses in 4-H. With her father's work ethic and her mother's civic engagement this led Meghan to become active in her community. She was president of the city soccer league for 2 years, serves on the Library Board and in her second term of Chairing the Sweetwater Democratic Party.
Meghan always heard growing up that "You can pick your friends but you can't pick your relatives". She believes this couldn't be further from the truth because she has been a part of 5 children's lives, four of which have different parents. She hopes to instill the same work ethic and civic duty, along with empathy and compassion for others to her 5 children by showing them instead of telling them by continuing what she's doing today.
