Hello from Advance CTE’s Newest Team Member

Hello, my name is Meredith Hills and I am thrilled to be joining Advance CTE as the Graduate Fellow for Federal Policy. I will be working closely with Kathryn Zekus, Senior Associate for Federal Policy, to support Advance CTE’s federal policy and advocacy strategy.

I am currently a candidate for a Master of Arts degree in Education Advocacy and Policy at Georgetown University, and am looking forward to gaining firsthand experience in this field. My interest in public policy began during my time as an undergraduate at University of Maryland, College Park (UMD), where I studied Government and Politics as well as Rhetoric. While a student at UMD, I interned in the U.S. House of Representatives and spent time volunteering with education non-profits around DC and Prince George’s County. These experiences allowed me to connect my passions for policy and education. After graduation, I worked at the Brookings Institution, a DC based public policy organization. At Brookings I observed the pivotal role that education policy plays across almost any other sector. As I began to learn more about the interconnected nature of education policy, I was moved to pursue studies and work in this field.
