Virginia Environmental Education Specialist
(804) 793 8783
Meredeth has worked as the Virginia Environmental Education Specialist since 2017. She grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and always had a curiosity for the outdoors. Her senior year of high school, her Biology class took a field trip to Smith Island and her love of the Bay was born. Prior to coming on board with Alliance, Meredeth has been a third grade teacher and a stay-at-home mom to two boys. In her role at the Alliance, she manages the RiverWise Schools Project, bringing watershed education to a variety of school districts and afterschool programs around the Richmond region. Meredeth works alongside partners such as Maymont Foundation, James River Park System, Blue Sky Fund, and NextUp RVA. She is an active member of the Virginia Association of Environmental Education and currently serves on their Certification Advisory Board. She holds a Biology degree from James Madison University and a Masters of Education from George Mason University. Her husband is an open-water swimmer and they both spend as much of the summer as possible with their boys and dog, Daisy, exploring the James River. Meredeth enjoys camping, cooking, laughing and live music, especially from the Avett Brothers.
