Megan Foucht

Senior Communications Manager / Interim Communications Director

Born to foresters and raised in Oregon, I’ve been in and around natural resource management in some fashion my entire life. I was drawn to Ecotrust because of the hope a triple-bottom-line approach inspired in me. And I continue to be inspired by an organization working to refine and evolve that approach, to be more just, equitable, and inclusive. I’m a writer, project manager, and frequent collaborator with colleagues from across the organization, threading together ideas and words that highlight the heart and how of our mission. However, my favorite role so far has been cheerleader: It is a privilege to tell the story of our work and the people and partnerships that make it possible.
