Meridith Blascovich's move to Santa Barbara, California as a child immediately cemented her love for the ocean. An avid traveler and ocean enthusiast, Meridith strives to leave every place better than she's found it. For the last nine years, she has worked in technology, where she currently focuses on building easy-to-use marketing solutions for small businesses and nonprofits in her role on Facebook's monetization team. She previously led the launch of Facebook video ads and worked at YouTube and Google for several years in both the US and Latin America. A former peace activist and regular volunteer for presidential campaigns, Meridith is passionate about making it easier for nonprofits to inspire and mobilize people through digital marketing. Advancing education for women and girls is also hugely important to Meridith, and learning a new word in a foreign language or reading a good book makes her day complete.
