My new (ab)normal: Meredith Turner, bread baker extraordinaire
Meet Associate Director, Advocacy, Meredith Turner. While quarantining at home, she has embraced sourdough bread-baking, house dresses and “The Home Edit.”
Meredith’s new (ab)normal
Name: Meredith Vivian Turner
Title: Associate Director, Advocacy
Department/Unit: UCOP State Governmental Relations
Workplace location: Sacramento
When you started working at UCOP: June 2016
What you do at UCOP in 10 words or less: Build coalitions and spearhead strategic budget and legislative advocacy campaigns.
Something new you’ve learned or started during the quarantine: Sourdough bread! I didn’t have a clue what a “starter” was pre-pandemic. Now I’m in deep, reading sourdough books and baking multiple loaves a week. You could say I’m obsessed.
The best thing you’ve watched/read/listened to lately: “The Home Edit” on Netflix!
Your work from home wardrobe staple: Usually a t-shirt and yoga pants. But I recently learned about the house dress and am fully on board.
How you stay connected with colleagues, family and friends: FaceTime and, when possible, physically-distanced hangouts.
What keeps you sane: Am I sane? Jury’s out. But wine helps.
The new (ab)normal is a new, fun way to share our unprecedented 2020 experiences with UCOP colleagues. Learn more — and share your new (ab)normal!Tags: Meredith Turner, My new (ab)normal

Ha! Long-time ‘housedress’ lady, here.
