Bio: Meredith’s journey began as a Miss Colorado Princess, which inspired and motivated her to compete successfully for Miss Colorado’s Outstanding Teen. The Miss America Organization has provided her with the most incredible examples of what young woman should aspire to be and the opportunity to discover and promote her own passion for community service. Being visually impaired since birth, Meredith has used her voice as a titleholder to educate, inform, and promote her platform of early intervention that can diagnose and prevent vision problems. She is proud to be a titleholder and to serve with purpose, gratitude, and an open heart.
