Meredith Graham is the executive director of the GoldLab Foundation. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Meredith took a job with Bain & Company’s global headquarters in Boston. She spent four years at Bain, where she was part of a core team that created an investment fund subsidiary. She left Bain for graduate school. At New York University, she received a master’s degree in Integrated Marketing, a program that focused on quantitative metrics, direct marketing fundamentals, social media, and ROI analysis by channel.
Meredith originally intended to work in the fashion industry and held internships at Prada and Ann Taylor. However, while in graduate school, Meredith lost both of her parents to preventable diseases. That life-changing experience convinced her to pursue a more meaningful, fulfilling path in work and life.
Consequently, after she received her master’s degree she moved to Boulder, Colorado. In Boulder, she worked as a Marketing Strategy Consultant until she teamed up with Larry Gold to form The GoldLab Foundation. In her capacity as Executive Director, she worked closely with Dr. Gold to create the initial plan for the Colorado Longitudinal Study. Now, with many more fantastic advisors, Meredith combines her marketing and leadership skills with collaborative spirit and passion for doing meaningful work to create the partnerships that will support COLS.
