Meredith has spent nearly two decades working to build capacity in education and nonprofit settings. She began her career as a classroom teacher, and has since worked in various nonprofit settings as a team leader, manager, and coach. Meredith spent ten years on staff at Teach For America in various program and human capital roles on both national and regional teams. Most recently, as Vice President of People, Leadership & Learning, she focused on talent recruitment and hiring, onboarding, performance management, coaching, and professional development for staff. She previously worked at New Leaders, helping to ensure first-rate training for urban school leaders. Meredith holds an A.B. from Dartmouth College and a master’s degree in Policy, Organization and Leadership Studies from Stanford University. After a decade in San Francisco, Meredith and her family moved north to the woods of Oregon, where she’s an active member of her small-town community. Meredith sits on several nonprofit boards ranging from the farmers market to her local Boys & Girls Club, and she recently ran for and won a seat on the county Education Service District board. You can usually find her chasing her three small children, cooking, and listening to John Denver or Broadway musicals.
