Meredith Pierson, Science Mentor at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa


I am a Santa Rosa native with 8+ years of teaching experience. As a child of two teachers, I grew up adamant that I would not follow in their footsteps. That changed while in grad school. Pursuing research was the main goal when entering the Biology graduate program at Sonoma State University, but I ended up recognizing my love for teaching. I enjoy the challenge of having to be constantly engaging and trying new approaches to make hard subjects easy to learn. Outside of teaching, I am an avid walker and hiker, with a passion for animal rights, exploring Europe, and baking (it’s a science after all!).
