Meredith Moses joined the board of The Charlotte News in December 2022.
Meredith retired in 2021 from a 40-year nursing career. She and her husband Peter have lived in Charlotte for 28 years, and their son John (who wrote a music column for The Charlotte News at one time) attended Charlotte Central School, Champlain Valley Union High and the University of Vermont.
In her last 20 years at the University of Vermont Medical Center, Meredith led the office of patient and family advocacy; served on numerous quality, operational and ethics committees; and was involved in policy development, hiring and education. She further trained in mediation and conflict resolution at Woodbury College and worked with plaintiffs and defendants in small claims court. She is a skilled copy editor, and enjoys new learning and problem solving, attributes that are important to daily operations and future developments at The Charlotte News.
Meredith has been involved around town as a Scout leader, as a volunteer with the Charlotte Food Shelf and a participant in a myriad of community and school events over the years. In all seasons, she tries to spend some time outdoors each day. She is grateful to have made her life in Charlotte and is a strong supporter of the paper.
She writes, “The Charlotte News is an important vehicle for building community and elevating a variety of voices and perspectives. This is particularly important in these divisive and isolating times. I am honored to join the board and eager to contribute to the continued success of The Charlotte News.”
