Since opening the doors to women’s endurance racing, she has gone on to compete and place in the sport’s most prestigious events and is constantly on the lookout for her next great adventure.

In april of 2010 she and fellow paddler Jenny Kalmbach became two of five people in the world to standup paddle the entire Hawaiian Island Chain. Destination 3 Degrees was a standup paddle adventure across Hawaii’s legendary channels. Inspired by their love of the ocean, Destination 3° was even more than a standup paddle adventure, more than an ocean challenge, and more than two women pushing the edges of themselves and their sport, it was a way to give back. Destination 3° put Jenny and Morgan in a unique and powerful position to raise awareness and funds to help benefit Algalita Marine Research Foundation in their efforts to understand and protect the oceans from the impacts of plastics contamination. Since then she has traveled to South America in search of big left handers, the Bahamas free diving with schools of sharks and been an annual contender for the BOP Women’s title!
