Meyer, a resident of Wayne, was born in Hoboken, New Jersey and raised in San Francisco, California. She returned to New Jersey after the sudden death of her father, married, and raised two daughters in an original log cabin in the Pines Lakes section of Wayne. She has had a lifelong interest in capturing images of things that are unique, interesting, and beautiful. Meyer is a Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum volunteer and has photographed its vistas, trees, plantings and flowers throughout the seasons, as well as special events and volunteer activities. Many of her photographs are featured on Laurelwood Arboretum’s publicity materials and website. She also volunteers to help maintain and enhance the gardens.
