Meg Ramey

Meg is a Senior Consultant on the Effective Organizations and Investments team at Education First. In this role, she uses equity-centered design to support organizations in making strategic decisions and transformative changes that benefit BIPOC and low-income students in the public education system. Meg manages projects for state, district, nonprofit and philanthropic leaders in key areas including K12 expanded learning, postsecondary access and success, and nonprofit organizational development.

Meg came to Ed First with a decade of experience leading classrooms, nonprofit programs and research efforts in schools and districts across the country. This on-the-ground perspective deeply informs her approach to strategy consulting, because she understands the importance of designing relevant, actionable solutions rooted in the day-to-day realities of students, families and educators. 

Meg lives in San Francisco, CA and holds her MA in Education Policy, Organization and Leadership Studies from Stanford University. Outside of work, she enjoys volunteering locally, playing music, reading novels and hiking with her dog Miles.
