BASED IN HAWAII HAVING RETURNED FROM SINGAPORE...
THIS FULL-TIME SWIM COACH and former professional triathlete turned World Record holding, and extreme marathon swimmer...is one of the most marketable and recognizable athletes on the planet! After a World Record channel swimming debut, people notice when Meredith walks into the room but not for the obvious reasons...
The Kate Moss of the channel swimming world - by most athletic industry standards Meredith is "not impressive enough" meaning that at 5'6" and just over 120 pounds she is too short, too small and too old - plus (her favorite) she doesn't "look like an athlete". According to most marketing professionals "SHE DOES NOT EVEN LOOK LIKE A SWIMMER"!
Rather than quit or get upset about things she couldn't change, she embraced her so called flaws and hasn't looked back since! Meredith doesn't have any special advantages - she trains really hard and GOES FOR IT! SHE IS SHOCKINGLY HONEST WITH HER EMOTIONS. SHE IS GRITTY AND REAL AND A MASTER AT CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE.
SHE LIVES OUTSIDE THE BOX - coaching, training, racing, speaking and modeling, Meredith INSPIRES everyone to try a little harder, dig deeper, to love themselves more...AND TO NEVER GIVE UP!
People usually expect world class swimmers to be 6 feet tall and ripped...so when Meredith walks into a room, she doesn't just turn heads... SHE TURNS HEARTS!

A former professional triathlete, Meredith has the distinction of beating all of the male pros out of the water multiple times during her career. Meredith competed internationally for 14 years, representing the USA at the World University Games in Triathlon and at four World Championships. She was very well liked by her peers and voted onto USA Triathlon's Athlete Advisory Council. While competing, she coached club and college swimming and triathlon - working with the best of the best: Coach Eddie Reese (USA Olympic Coach / University of Texas), Coach Tim Murphy (US Olympic Open Water Swim Coach), Coach Nick Baker (Canadian Olympic Coach), Coach Brett Sutton - to name a few...
Retiring from triathlon in her 30's, she speaks to teams and clubs on reaching the next level in sport and gives consultations. She has worked at the Ironman World Championships in Kona six times...as a brand rep and spokesmodel for On-Running shoes, BeachBody and Ironman. Meredith loves sharing her knowledge and talking to thousands of people. At 45 years young, she truly inspires and motivates!
Meredith raced in more than 125 triathlons, hundreds of swimming competitions and has coached at even more! She competed in 5 open water swimming events in Sydney, Australia and reached the podium in 4 of them. Her most impressive finish was placing second in her division in Australia's biggest swim - an event with 6,500 swimmers! She was in Sydney speaking to and meeting with hundreds of swimmers, training with different squads and working on her book. She then left for Hawaii to train in big waves (8 footers), feeling out different conditions and filming some new footage for The Surfing Channel. She then headed to the East Coast, training with MAC in North Carolina and sharing the pool with Olympians and Masters Swimmers. Giving clinics to swimmers, triathletes and the physically challenged, Meredith always wants to do more, give more and be more!
Meredith lived in Hawaii for almost ten years. She volunteer coached at the University of Hawaii and mentored female open water swimmers. Most recently she has worked with Cherelle Oestringer (Swiss National Champion in the 10k, 5k and 800m Free, Women’s Waikiki RoughWater Champion and OVERALL Champion of the Double RoughWater), Haley Chasin (Women’s North Shore Swim Series Champion and OVERALL Champion of the Double RoughWater) and Stephanie Peacock (3rd at US Olympic Trials in the 800m Free and US Open Water National Team Member).
Having just completed a coaching stint in Singapore, Meredith is happy to be back in the USA!
