supporting Cambridge public school students

Meg Ramsdell

Meg Ramsdell serves as CSV’s energetic executive director, running all aspects of the organization from finances to program design to collaboration with CPS administrators and teachers. Prior to becoming executive director, Meg served as director of CSV’s NetPals program and, earlier, program coordinator for both NetPals and the Learning Center at Cambridge Street Upper School. Ramsdell began her association with CSV as a volunteer in the outdoor Art & Science in One program in 2016.

Meg received a bachelor of arts from Wellesley College and a master of arts in teaching English from Brown University. She brings to her role at CSV 10 years of experience teaching English at the middle and high school levels, as well as the experience of parenting four children, all of whom have attended Cambridge Public Schools (CPS). Meg’s enthusiasm for working with CPS students comes straight from the heart.

Meg has a strong commitment to food justice and was previously the president of the board of directors of Waltham Fields Community Farm and was a long-time board member of the Friends of Amigos School. 

When she has a moment to herself, Meg can be found on a bike ride along the water or with family, cooking food grown in their garden. With a little more spare time, she hopes to get back to metalsmithing and botanical illustration.
