Tegan grew up in North Dakota, spending her summers on the lakes of Minnesota and her winters cruising around the plains on snowmobiles (and trying to stay warm, let's be honest). She completed her undergraduate and graduate degrees at North Dakota State University and, afterwards, moved to the Chicagoland area where she provided counseling services to children/youth and their families. Tegan eventually made her way south to Austin and hasn't looked back. She enjoys traveling, running, anything on the water, and big belly laughs with friends, family, and strangers. Tegan is excited to share new experiences and laughter with fellow mentors and Explorers.
