Meredith Reid Sarkees and her husband John are natives of Niagara Falls, New York, and moved to Nunda Township after living there and in Romeo, Michigan.
Meredith spent most of her career as a professor of political science at Niagara University and DePaul University, while John is an automotive engineer. Meredith is currently working as a consultant and an author, while retaining an honorary appointment as a faculty fellow with the Women & Politics Institute at American University.
She has written extensively on issues relating to women's leadership, the making of American foreign policy, and international wars. As Director of the Global Women’s Leadership in International Security (GWLIS) project, she is interviewing women who are leaders in the realm of international security, including women in both governmental and non-governmental organizations. This project led Meredith to create ties with women's organizations in Sri Lanka, where she did volunteer work in the wake of the 2004 tsunami.
Meredith has become involved with a number of local organizations, particularly the McHenry County Democratic Party. She was appointed and then elected as the Precinct Representative for Nunda 14.

Meredith received her B.A. in political science from Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio; her M.A. in international affairs from George Washington University in Washington, DC; and her Ph.D. in political science from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
