As Director of Field Programs and Impact, Meredith enjoys seeing each partnership come together. Drawing from her decade of experience living and working across Africa, Meredith and her team match the needs of each African business with the appropriate resources from our partners. In addition, Meredith closely monitors project results for lessons and makes adjustments to create better outcomes for the volunteer teams and the businesses, as well as our implementing partner, TechnoServe.
Meredith is a super-volunteer herself, having served as president and board member of the Minnesota International NGO Network, an all-volunteer organization, and is currently on the board of African Mother's Health Initiative, which focuses on maternal and child health in Malawi. Despite her wealth of experience, Meredith is always aspiring to learn new skills, particularly in the rich field of monitoring and evaluation. Away from work, Meredith is passionate about cycling and board games. You'll often find her bike parked in the PFS entryway during summer months.
