Meredith’s career in non-profit began as an intern at American Cancer Society-Austin while attending school at Texas State University. Her mom passed away of breast cancer at the age of 11, so she knew she wanted to do her part in joining the fight. She ended up graduating and working at American Cancer Society-Houston from 2007-2010. During her time there she managed six different special events that included galas, golf tournaments and fashion shows. She was given the American Cancer Society’s “Rising Star” award at the national level for her work in fundraising. In 2010, she was offered a position at the corporate office of Goodwill Industries of Houston handling the marketing and media relations as well as serving as the official spokesperson for the enterprise. Her heart is for the broken, lost, and fatherless. She feels a close connection to the LifeHouse residents through experiencing many of her own life struggles at an early age and seeing the healing that comes from trusting the Great Redeemer, Jesus. Meredith has been involved with LifeHouse since 2010 through the “Celebration Dinner” and now uses her gifts to serve the ministry full time as the Executive Director.
