Career Highlights
  • Meredith is back to work, as she was a full-time at-home parent from 2006 to 2014. 

  • She began her new career at a small CPA firm that needed data entry, which evolved into bookkeeping, some marketing, making tax appointments and basically wearing any hat that was given to her.

  • She then began working at Gen Re, which was her longest-running corporate job helping her gain the knowledge required to work as a professional bookkeeper! 

Did You Know?
  • Meredith has been taking educational classes on and off since high school graduation in 1991. She is always thinking of what class/course she wants to take next.

  • She has 3 boys – twins Christian & Jackson and a younger son Keiran.  Meredith's favorite times are being with them and watching them be themselves.  She is always happy to take one to a concert, play Dungeons and Dragons, or close her eyes when they want to jump from a rock on a hike!

  • Meredith has a dog Freyja & a cat Schmitty Schmat (yes, there is a story behind the name), and is often taking hikes or walks or snuggling with one of them!

  • Meredith has a big fear of heights after having children, but when in Niagara Falls all 3 kids wanted to do the zip line over the falls so she sucked it up and went with them. She can now say she ziplined over Niagara Falls! (Meredith's husband got the entire thing on video and yes, she screamed but kept her eyes open the whole time!)

  • Outside of family and animal time, she loves to lightly run, draw/paint, listen to music, and watch pointless tv/movies!
