An award-winning designer, art director, and overall brand builder, Meredith has spent the majority of her career helping companies tell their stories in meaningful ways.

Before merging with Cookson Communications in 2016, she owned her own creative design agency, MSNCreate. Along the way, she worked on creative for household names like Charmin, Naked Juice, Jack-in-the-Box, MegaFood and Petco. In addition to her role at Cookson, Meredith volunteers as an illustrator for The Superhero Project, an organization where artists design alter-egos imagined by kids and teens with serious health challenges.

Drawing cute animals, pop culture, fitness and her family (not necessarily in that order): An accomplished horsewoman, Meredith has happily passed the reins to her daughter Chloe, who competes for her college equestrian team. In her downtime, Meredith maintains a daily yoga practice. She hopes to someday do a handstand without fearing for her life. In addition, she and her husband Dan can be found taking last-minute trips to NYC to see The Tonight Show and SNL, making TikToks of her pet hedgehog Franklin and designing animal-themed merch for her Threadless artist shop.
