Allow me to introduce myself as Juliet Meade.
Motivation, determination and hard work are my driving forces as is a new challenge. It is my hope that I can inspire my community to make change/difference, strive for equality and assist with breaking down the barriers which do not allow us to communicate effectively and resolve conflicts.
I received my B.A. in Psychology from SUNY College at Buffalo in 1998, and my Masters in College Student Personnel Administration from Canisius College in 2001. My work experience includes Diversity training, Associate Faculty/adjunct professor/Social Sciences and Humanities, working with children in many different settings, working in different capacities in a human service/counseling setting, teaching parenting and discipline, career/vocational services, and crisis counseling.
After receiving my Masters, I began working at Medaille College in an administrative role in Academic Affairs as an Academic Advisement Counselor, Disability Services, then moved to Student Affairs and founded the Center for Multicultural Education and Diversity. Serving as an adjunct professor, I have resided in this role for over a decade.
I have worked at many different colleges in the Buffalo /Rochester area. In an independent role, I have served as a trainer on topics ranging from diversity/multicultural education, parenting/discipline, stress/anger management, conflict resolution, leadership and interpersonal relations.
I recently retired my position as an Associate Faculty member at the University of Phoenix – Humanities and Social Sciences Department.
I have been running for almost two decades now, completed many races, and half marathons, completed my first marathon and my first Iron girl triathalon last summer 2014.
