Hello everyone! My name is Megan Meservia and I am proud to be joining the LAFS team as Loans Grants Administrative Assistant. As many of you may know, I was born and raised in the Lillooet area on a family owned and operated cattle ranch, where I still help out whenever possible and have a few of my own cow/calf pairs. In 2016 I graduated from Retail Meat Processing at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. I then went on to work as a meatcutter in a retail butcher shop there, before returning home to Lillooet. I have seen a cow go from a calf on the farm to a steak on the plate and understand the many challenges that those in agriculture face trying to get their products to the consumer, whether that be livestock or crops. I have a great love for agriculture and a deep respect for those working in the industry. Farmers and ranchers are some of the most hardworking, innovative and resilient people I know, and face challenges on a daily basis. As Loans & Grants Administrative Assistant, I hope to help ease some of these challenges by assisting producers in connecting and applying to the many resources available to them, especially those looking to assist their businesses with funding in the form of grants. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone, as well as continuing to see agriculture grow and prosper in our community!
