Jo Frances Meyer

Director of Special Projects

Jo Frances Meyer joined the Camp Harbor View team in 2020 during the early days of the pandemic, and since then she has assisted her colleagues with health equity and guaranteed income initiatives, as well as contractual matters.  In her current role, she works closely with members of the CHV team who are directly engaged with climate resilience measures to address the most pressing environmental challenges facing CHV’s island home.  She also will seek to develop and advance collaborative efforts with local, state, and regional environmental organizations in order to find workable solutions that will protect the camp and keep staff and campers safe in the years to come.

Prior to her work for Camp Harbor View, Jo Frances served as Executive Director of Boston Landmarks Orchestra, and in senior roles for other performing arts organizations and nonprofits, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, and Rockport Music.  Before her career in the nonprofit sector, Jo Frances practiced health care law and commercial litigation in Boston. She swears she’s not a jack-of-all trades, but her door is always open for whatever unique CHV special projects might land on her desk that could benefit from her experience and expertise.

Jo Frances earned her Bachelor of Science degree in journalism from Boston University, her Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School, and a Master in Public Administration from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. She currently serves as the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Longy School of Music at Bard College, as a member of the Board of Directors for the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare, and as a member of the Boards of Advisors of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Landmarks Orchestra, and Lyric Stage Company of Boston.
