Head of School
Meara (rhymes with Sara!) joined Fusion Academy in 2017 and became part of the Washington D.C. campus community as Head of School in August 2019. Prior to serving at Fusion D.C., Meara served Assistant Director, and Interim Head of School for a maternity leave, at Fusion Academy Loudoun. She then took on a regional support role as Head of School in Training, primarily based at Fusion Academy Rockville. Prior to joining Fusion Academy, Meara worked in education for nine years, including serving as a teacher and principal in Hartford, Connecticut.
Meara holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in French and Africana Studies from the College of the Holy Cross and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University. She feels extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Fusion students and families and be part of such a dedicated and compassionate team of educators.
Meara lives with her husband and daughter in Falls Church, VA, and enjoys staying active, being outside, drawing, volunteering, and traveling to and exploring new places. Some fun facts about Meara are that she studied abroad in Cameroon for a year and that she has run two Ragnar Relay races and many half marathons.
