Meredith Graham

Master Counselor, Collegewise

Meredith spent seven years as an associate director of admissions at Cornell University where, on the dare of a colleague, she once worked the phrase “Dolly Parton” into a seven-minute presentation about Cornell. She also earned a master’s degree in higher education and worked as an academic advisor at Purdue, all after studying chemistry at The College of Wooster.


A scientist and a counselor at heart, Meredith is the author of the Collegewise publication STEM’s Many Branches: College Planning for Students Considering Majors in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. A true renaissance woman, Meredith has also learned how to clog (the folk dance, not the backing-up-a-sink kind of clog), fly a glider, knit, shoot a shotgun on a trap-shooting range, and rock climb. While Meredith does admit to having a fundamental inability to follow fashion trends, as Dolly Parton once said, “I would never stoop so low as to be fashionable.”

Hansel Lynn

Founder & CEO, theCoderSchool

Back in 2013, Hansel happened to be trying to get his own kids to learn to code. When his oldest, Maile (10 at the time), whipped through an online learning website really fast, proud Papa asked some questions. To his surprise, Maile really didn’t learn much at all! “I just clicked through to get to the end”, they said (sound familiar, parents?!). That was the lightbulb moment when Hansel realized that software can’t teach kids – PEOPLE need to teach kids. And thus the idea behind theCoderSchool and our Code Coaches® mentoring philosophy was born.
