Meridee Duplissey, United Auxillaries Specialist
Meridee was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin. She jumped at the first opportunity to flee to warmer waters when she moved to Hawaii and eventually landed in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is where she met her husband John. After 11 years together they started a family. Meridee had been working in San Francisco for a law firm when their first child, Samantha, was born. This life changing event prompted the thought of moving to a location with more affordable housing, hence the move to Lancaster. (How Lancaster was chosen is a whole other story!) Blessed to stay at home for five years with their children Samantha, now 14 and Sydney, age 12, Meridee reentered the work force and found a great fit at Millersville University Special Events Office. Unfortunately, the position was temporary and after 2 years she started with Pottery Barn. Meridee opted to start as a sales associate and work her way up the ladder so that she would fully understand each role. After six years, 5 years as an assistant store manager she felt the urge to do work that was more tangible and meaningful. Her combined office, retail, and merchandising skills found their way to LGH. Meridee is thrilled to now be making a difference in the community by supporting the United Auxiliaries and it's Survivorship Program.
