Megan S. Candelaria, a life-long Wyoming resident, grew up in Sundance, Wyo., the small-town that gave Henry Longbaugh the moniker “The Sundance Kid.” Although she began her university career as a pre-law major, reading her first law brief quickly dissuaded her of that idea and she eventually fell into a physics/mathematics major. Megan received a BS in mathematics and physics (2006) and a Masters in mathematics (2009).  Megan is currently the Associate Director of the Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium where she coordinates STEM outreach efforts in the state of Wyoming.
Megan currently lives in Laramie, Wyo. with her 5 year-old son Maxx, 18 month-old daughter Piper as well as the family’s two dogs, and a crazy cat affectionately nicknamed ‘the Monster.’ She’s an animal lover, an outdoor enthusiast, and a bibliophile.  In her free time, she enjoys epically failing at various Pinterest projects.
