.Megan is a Kettering native and has little intentions of moving elsewhere until she is done with school. Growing up, her family always had an assortment of pets: cats, dogs, hamsters, fish, rabbits, the list goes on! She owned her cat, Ripley, who unfortunately passed in May. She now has her kitten, Gomez (she's sticking to Halloween themed names) shown in the picture, and her roommates kitten, Tucker. She is currently attending Sinclair Community College for an Associates Degree in Biology, but could potentially start going for an Associates Degree in Biotechnology soon.
