After graduating from Linfield in 2008, Meredith went to Bob Jones University where she studied Music Education with a focus in Viola and Piano. She taught music in Minnesota for a year and then actually moved back to California to serve as Linfield’s elementary school band and orchestra teacher for four years! She also was blessed with an opportunity to teach high school Bible for a couple years. Meredith’s husband, Tyler, is in the Marine Corps, so she and their three young boys are currently stationed at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. Meredith serves on the worship team at Pillar Church of Jacksonville and helps out with members whose spouses are currently deployed overseas. She’s also homeschooling her oldest son and teaching private piano/violin lessons part-time.
She says, “Honestly my days are spent breaking up fights, wiping tears, and sharing the gospel with my tiny humans, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.” As she thinks back on her years at Linfield, she recognizes how prepared she was for college and how easy the transition was because she already knew how to study, take notes, and prepare for tests/projects.
