In an entrepreneur’s life there will be high highs and low lows. You can’t get distracted by either.

Julia Meyerson

Teaching for two years in New York’s South Bronx helped shape Julia Meyerson’s commitment to education and prepared her to eventually open Vista College Prep in Arizona. Meyerson finds inspiration from the schools she visits and the phenomenal teachers she trains and observes. Her ultimate goal as an educator is to always “be better for the student.”

She recently spent two years studying the highest performing charter schools across the country. She brings those experiences to her school here. Strong mentors have a vision to accomplish their goals and successfully translate that plan to their teams, she says. Meyerson is passionate about working to help more women obtain leadership roles.
