Meredith is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mass Communication at Jackson State University. She has had a diverse career as a broadcast journalist and an educator.  As a former TV news reporter, she has worked at a number of stations in Jackson and Cincinnati, Ohio.

Meredith received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Lincoln University in Missouri, a Master of Arts in English (Mass Communication Concentration) from Jackson State University in Mississippi, and a Ph.D. in Public Policy and Administration from Mississippi State University. In 1997, she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study “Communication Sciences and the Media in Germany.”

In September 2010, Meredith’s dissertation was published as a monograph by Lambert Academic Publishing in Germany. It explores the glass ceiling for women in administration at public universities in the Deep South.
