Jill Fuglister named Healthy Environment Portfolio Director

It’s a great pleasure to share the good news that Jill Fuglister will be Meyer’s new Healthy Environment Portfolio Director.

While you know Jill from four years as a program officer at Meyer, juggling both Responsive and Grassroots grants, her background and skills that make her a great fit for this position.

Before Meyer, Jill spent 16 years in the environmental field developing a broad base of knowledge and experience, from traditional conservation to sustainability to environmental justice. Her experience integrating and operationalizing equity into environmental work is quite unique in the field.

Her educational background — a masters degree in environmental studies and a baccalaureate in government — offers a solid grounding in understanding environmental issues and policy. And Jill’s management experience as co-executive director at CLF and as operations manager for the Sisters of the Road Cafe provides a base of planning, budget management and supervision experience that will serve her well in this role.

I couldn’t be happier to have Jill lead Meyer Trust’s new Healthy Environment portfolio.

Please join me and Candy in congratulating Jill on her new transition!
