Meilee Bridges brings more than 20 years of experience in marketing, storytelling, and teaching to ReUp Education. Prior to joining ReUp, Meilee created end-to-end multichannel campaigns and crafted student and alumni success stories as content director for a small liberal-arts college in Texas. She previously worked as a copywriter for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., as well as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader for numerous publications.
A first-generation college student, Meilee taught online and at brick-and-mortar universities and K–12 schools before and after earning her MA and Ph.D. in English at the University of Michigan and her BA at Trinity University. A lifelong love of the written word and a passion for supporting learners of all ages and backgrounds are the spine that binds the pages of her career.
In her off-work hours, Meilee loves spoiling her furkids while reading and watching historical dramas and mysteries, usually of the British persuasion. You can also find her playing games (video and board), obsessing over her tea collection, and dreaming about Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands. She is a truly terrible gardener, but she keeps trying regardless.
