Get to know Meredith Tufts, Parenting Now!’s Parenting Educator in the First Three Years Program!
When did you join Parenting Now! and how did you find out about the organization?
I joined Parenting Now! in August 2017 after stumbling across a job posting for a Parenting Educator. I had heard wonderful things about PN! from people I had met in the community after moving back to Eugene in 2016.
What type of work do you do for Parenting Now!?
I work as a Parenting Educator in the First Three Years program, facilitating parent groups and taking photos for families who visit Baby Connection.
What would you like prospective parents to know about Parenting Now! that you think they may not realize or know?
Parenting Now! has such a wide variety of programs to address the many challenging aspects of parenting! As a parent, it can be hard to value our own need for community and camaraderie, to make time for ourselves, and to ask for help, but these are some of the greatest gifts we can give our children. When we help ourselves to find answers, support, and peace of mind, we are able to become the parents we want to be!
Fun Facts: Meredith’s Favorites
I love hiking and backpacking near and far, with special places in my heart for Big Sur, the High Sierras, and New Zealand. It’s hard to pick a favorite food – probably pie! My favorite animal is a quail. My favorite movie is I Heart Huckabees.
