Bethany King leads marketing and communications for New Meridian, charged with increasing awareness and engagement across multiple audiences. It’s a wonderful role for an ambassador at heart.
Bethany is a veteran traveler, having visited more than 30 countries on five continents—and she’s not done yet.

“I love spending time in other cultures,” she said. “Every time I travel, I experience the world from a different perspective and that always makes me a better communicator. What better way is there to learn about how people connect and the possibilities this world offers us?”

Bethany has spent her career in education, driving pivotal moments of innovation and change for companies that seek to improve quality, access, equity and outcomes for students. Her resume spans public, private and nonprofit organizations, including roles at Teaching Strategies, Rosetta Stone and Envision Experience. Bethany also started her own education consulting business, working with companies in the early education and K-12 edtech space before joining New Meridian in early 2021.

Bethany earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and international business from Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park; and a master’s degree in communications with a concentration in public relations from Georgetown University. She resides in Annapolis, Maryland with her husband and young son.
