McGough runs a popular Wyoming dude ranch that borders the majestic Grand Teton mountains. As a woman in long-term recovery, she sees beauty in the world around her – but especially in herself. “I don’t ever want to not love myself again, so I do the work of recovery every day,” McGough says. She overcame a 25-year alcohol addiction with intensive outpatient treatment and the support of a 12-step program. Now six years sober, McGough often chairs an AA meeting while balancing life as a business owner, wife and mother to three children. “If I stay in the moment, I find that each second is purposeful and has meaning,” says McGough, recipient of a 2017 Wyoming Women of Influence award for being an inspiration to others in her state.
