Meredith Howell, PhD

Regional Program Developer: Coastal Region

I joined RDI in 2012 after spending several years helping Oregon nonprofit organizations and schools develop projects and match funding sources to those projects. My background in scientific research, teaching, and curriculum development at the university level helps me effectively communicate complicated and abstract concepts to audiences of youth and adult learners. I enjoy using these same skills in my work as a facilitator/trainer for the Learn By Doing - Grant Writing Series, RDI leadership programs, and more. I live in Yachats on the Oregon Coast. My partner Leon, my two sons, and I are all past graduates of the Ford Institute Leadership Program.
