Ginny Meredith

Founder/Executive Director

Co-founder of Inspirit, Ginny has worked in the management and administration of non profits for more than 17 years. As a classically trained violinist, she has been playing the violin for over 30 years with many types of musicians including orchestras and an Irish band. In June 2006, Ginny was awarded for her Outstanding Community Service by the Governor’s Council for Community Health and recognized for “her commitment and vision in bringing solace to those isolated from society through performing arts”. She was a nominee for the 2007 Dwight Ellison Fellow Awards that honors ordinary citizens who have served their communities in Palm Beach and Martin Counties in extraordinary ways.

It was shortly after returning from a six week Rotary Club International exchange program in Africa that Ginny was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998. Undergoing difficult chemotherapy treatments, she found out first-hand the kind of therapy that music could provide, especially during a challenge. After consulting her friend Janna Lauer, who runs a similar organization called Heart and Soul in Utah, Ginny got overwhelmingly positive responses from sending a questionnaire out to South Florida facilities. By 2000, Inspirit was born.
