Meredith Smith

Meredith is currently our resident Associate Editor. Alongside Joseph, she personally proofreads and reviews all articles submitted by our writer team prior to publication. But just like every other staff at the site, she also has a hand in creating content for TheKingLive and its readers.

Meredith’s specialization lies in the Home and Garden section as well as topics relating to Baby Care.

As the mother of a toddler and a newborn, Meredith is one of the very few people at TheKingLive who has an authoritative voice on this topic. She can tell you exactly what you need and what you should get for your child.

According to Meredith, she enjoys being a “modern parent”. In other words, she loves leveraging smart home technology and the latest baby care equipment to keep her home and family in order. If you read her article, more than anything, Meredith is a staunch supporter for smart baby monitoring tech.

Besides baby care topics, you can also find a couple of her articles on Home and Garden, too. Having worked as a freelance reviewer for a few years in her own time at home, Meredith can give you some nifty insights into home-improvement products. You can count on her to help you out when it comes to products that can help your home look and feel better to live in.

Big bonus if your home also has a child running around. Many of Meredith’s guides are to help you manage a modern, comfortable home with children.

When she’s not working, Meredith enjoys spending time with her two children and gardening. To take care of her children better, she primarily works from her home in a quiet suburb of Minnesota.

A Few Words from Meredith Smith:

“Any parent knows the hardship that comes with raising a tiny human being that depends wholly on us to keep them safe, fed, and happy. Though I won’t trade it for the world, it’s stressful having this responsibility. Though I constantly try to make an effort to make our entire family’s life better, it is always a work in progress.

It surely can be difficult (and sometimes confusing) to find the best products for the home and the children. The home improvement and baby care industries are enormous. At the top of my head, I can name a dozen familiar brands and I can point to hundreds of great products that are worth investigating if you have the time.

But the thing is that not many people (parents, especially) have the time to pore through long-winded reviews.

This is the purpose I found while working at TheKingLive. I hope I can partly share some of this great burden with you through my words and expertise.”
