Meredith Walker began her television career working at Linda Ellerbee’s NICK NEWS for Nickelodeon. During her time there, the show won the Peabody Award as well as several Emmys. Working her way up to senior segment producer, Meredith traveled to all 50 states to interview kids who had interesting stories to tell. This would become the foundation for her deepening interest in the lives of young people.  She next served as head of the Talent Department at the iconic Saturday Night Live, where she met her best friend, Amy Poehler, with whom she co-created “amy Poehler’s Smart Girls.” It is a groundbreaking way to use the internet to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the lives of young women.

Now living in Austin, Meredith offers her time as a mentor at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, gives speeches on how you can be a “smart girl” no matter your age or place in life, and devotes her time and talent to directing  “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls“, including the Smart Girls camps, podcasts and workshops.
