Megan Newkirk has been with Lake Humane Society since November of 2017 as the Animal Clinic Care Manager and in 2019 became the Shelter Manager. She graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelors of Science. Megan has always had a passion for animals and knew that she wanted to get into the medical field and help save as many animals as she could. While in college, she worked as a veterinary assistant at a private practice. When she graduated she decided to become a wildlife rehabilitation specialist. After 9 years and 2 children later, Megan left the field to be a full time mom and a part time veterinary technician. As she worked in private practice she knew that she wanted to do more for those animals that couldn’t afford to get treatment. She began searching for her new career and found Lake Humane Society. Now, she oversees most aspects of the shelter including medical, animal care, adoptions, and foster. In Megan’s free time she enjoys hiking, camping, and being outside in the river with her family and dogs.
