Welcome, my name is Megan. I am a 31-year-old mom to two great girls, Rhyan and Skyler. At the age of 18, I had Skyler, dropped out of High School and got my G.E.D. I started to work in the Security field and quickly moved up into management. I loved it. In 2010, I worked for a college police department assisting them with Security, when it was brought to my attention that I would make a good police officer and was encouraged to enroll myself into the Police Academy. I graduated from the East Field Criminal Justice Training Program in 2011 and returned to the security field while waiting to find a place with a police department. When I was moved back to the same college, I was hired on as a police officer shortly after, thinking I had left behind the world of security.
In 2013, I was hired on with the county as the Assistant Chief of Security. I loved my career I was building. I enjoyed so much of what I was doing. In April of 2013, I found out that the Chief of Security would be moving to a different department and would leave me as Acting Chief until either I was hired full-time as the Chief, or a new Chief was hired.
My redirection in life would come that same week. While at the doctor’s office, I was told “Congratulations, your pregnant.” What no one knew at that time was how far along I was. I gave birth to Rhyan in May 2013, just one month later. My surprise pregnancy has changed so much about who I am. After returning to work three weeks later, I was never really the same. I didn’t enjoy Security and Law Enforcement anymore. In 2014, I was given the option to be a stay at home mother. I jumped at it with the expectations I would return in a few years.
Aug. 2014, everything changed about the career I loved. My brothers and sisters in blue were now under attack and it was no longer worth thinking of returning without the support of the people I would be protecting. My children are more important than that. I have since found that even security isn’t worth it to me either. I have found that working for myself as a photographer has been more self-fulfilling than any other job I could do.
I have always had a wandering heart and always loved travel in the little bits that I have been able to over the years. We love road trips, and so with meeting James, I see that living full-time on the road might actually be possible. We might actually be able to make money with this site while sharing things that we love and making videos on our YouTube Account.
