Meredith Lux


I was born and raised in Bedford and have always loved the town. The people are friendly, and the community has a lot of potential to grow. I enjoy playing with my dogs, Gus and Otis, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy traveling to new places and checking things off my bucket list, such as skydiving. However, becoming an aunt has been one of the best experiences for me, especially since my sister lives right across the street. I love keeping my family close and watching how my great grandparent’s house has made a home for my sister’s new family. I realized that watching a house become a home is inspiring and I want to be able to help others accomplish this. I look forward to helping the community grow!
