Information compiled in May 2006 by Carol Ann McCormick,
Assistant Curator of the University of North Carolina Herbarium

Megan Mailloux worked in the University of North Carolina Herbarium as an undergraduate. She databased specimens of taxa listed as rare by the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program. In collaboration with Dr. Alan Weakley, Curator of NCU, she annotated many of our older specimens with their current names.

Ms. Mailloux was born in 1983 in Buncombe County, North Carolina, and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Biology in 2005. She was the winner of the Francis J. LeClair Award, given annually to an outstanding graduating senior for academic excellence in biology with an emphasis in plant sciences.

She spent one year working for Americorps, with the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy.  She is a graduate of the University of Georgia Masters of Landscape Architecture Program, and is currently working for Wolf Creek Engineering, a stream restoration firm in Weaverville, North Carolina.
