Hi, I am Megan Miller pretty much a born and raised Geologist, my training days started when I was 4 years old this included the tasks of washing samples, seeing what was going on in the Doghouse and logging truck. Our family has even spent a few Christmas' on the rigs with Charlie Brown Christmas Trees and the water hauler making a skating rink for us to play some puck. I worked my summers since I was 16 either on the rigs or once in University for oil and gas companies.
