Partnership Director, Partnership
Merisha earned her bachelor’s degree in English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Shortly after, she began teaching in 2008 as a high school English teacher. In 2012, Merisha traveled to London, UK to obtain her master’s degree in Education Leadership & Management, with a dissertation focus exploring the impact of nonprofits on youth development in North Carolina. After obtaining her master’s degree, she moved back to Charlotte, NC and began working at a local high school. Over the next decade, Merisha spent time working at both the middle and high school level, while also serving as a curriculum writer for the district.
Most recently, Merisha served as a middle school academic facilitator before leaving the K-12 space and pursuing a role as a content writer with a specialization in professional learning for educators across the country.
Merisha is excited to join EOS to continue her service of advancing educational equity by assisting schools and districts across the country to better meet the academic needs of historically marginalized students. As a former teacher who witnessed the systemic inequities affecting the quality of education her students were receiving, she remains committed to the mission of EOS and is looking forward to being a part of making a positive impact on the educational landscape.
Merisha enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and her sweet puppy, Kato. In her spare time, you can find Merisha reading a great book, exploring new restaurants in and around Charlotte, and traveling to a new city/country.
