Welcome to Meredith Models
Meredith Models, located in northern New Jersey, has been an industry leader since its inception in 1978. Founded by the trailblazing Joyce Meredith, a former model who graced the runways of the Twin Cities and New York, the agency was established on the core values that she held dear – integrity, perseverance, and compassion.
Joyce was a luminary in her own right, transitioning from being a successful model to opening one of the most reputable agencies on the East Coast. Her unwavering commitment to nurturing talent and providing unparalleled service set the stage for what Meredith Models is today.
Joyce passed the torch to her senior booking agent, Ingrid Schmerling, in 2001. She took up the mantle and continued the Meredith legacy, maintaining superior quality and professionalism until her well-deserved retirement in 2019. Ingrid’s daughter-in-law, Ashley Schmerling, stepped into the role of owner and agency director, inheriting the family’s commitment to excellence. Ingrid remains actively involved in major contract negotiations and provides invaluable guidance as a consultant to Meredith Models. This seamless transition ensures that our clients and talent continue to benefit from the wisdom and experience that has characterized our agency for over four decades.
