Meredith is originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, but has recently moved to Boston to work as a clinical research coordinator for Boston Children’s Hospital. She is a born and raised Tar Heel and therefore a huge college basketball fan. In her spare time, Meredith love's to run, cook, sing, listen to podcasts, and travel. Her love of traveling began when she spent a month in Sri Lanka living with a host family and shadowing in a government run hospital. She even had the chance to ride on an elephant! Meredith can also speak a little bit of Lingala - an African language spoken in the Congo.
