Program Officer, Marine Conservation
Meredith’s focus is on marine spatial planning on the U.S. west coast to explore how to help ocean industries engage. In addition she works on sustainable seafood issues including innovative financing, the exploration of leveraged opportunities and data poor stock assessment solutions.
Previously, Meredith spent more than a decade working on international marine fishery and market-based conservation solutions at the World Wildlife Fund. As director of the organization’s major buyer initiative, she worked with major seafood buyers, such as Walmart, SYSCO, Kroger and Costco, to secure seafood from environmentally sustainable sources, assess current seafood supply chains for sustainability and use supply chains to improve fisheries around the world. Other key accomplishments include helping the first Japanese fishery and tuna fishery to become certified by the Marine Stewardship Council.
Meredith holds an M.S. in earth systems science, a B.S. in biology and a B.A. in economics, all from Stanford University.
