Meredith Beaupre

Pre-Health Coordinator


Contact for:

  • Pre-Health advising and coaching

Meredith Beaupre is the Pre-Health Coordinator for the Honors Program. She offers support and tailored advice for students, from initial exploration of a health career all the way through matriculation into their post-UF professional schools. Meredith believes one of the greatest assets of the Program is the number of dedicated faculty and staff available to the Honors student community – and finds her role in developing these connections rewarding and energizing.

A Gainesville native, Meredith knows the local community and educational system well: she earned a B.S. and M.Ed. from UF and has worked in student services at the university for over 10 years.

Aside from pre-health advising, Meredith spends time with her family and dog, Buttercup. Her ideal vacation spot includes a beach or mountain.

  • Wellness and school / life balance

Gregg Henderschiedt is an Honors Program Advisor with an emphasis on pre-health.  He draws from his background in mental health and career counseling, academic advising, graduate program administration, and pre-health recruitment and admissions when working with students. His goal is to go “big picture” and help maximize opportunities while maintaining life balance. 

Gregg has been in student services for over 20 years, 17 of which have been at the University of Florida. He earned an M.S.Ed. degree in mental health counseling and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography with specializations in Latin American and Scandinavian Studies. With his love of culture and travel, it is no surprise that he studied abroad twice (Argentina and Finland).

Outside of the professional space, he loves cooking, teaches Hebrew reading skills at a local synagogue, and enjoys watching a good cricket match. Any other cricket fans in Honors?

Michael K. O’Malley is an Honors Program Advisor. He helps students determine how to best reach their goal at UF and beyond, and coaches them to reflect thoughtfully on their college experience. Mike believes in the value of higher education as a form of common good – and that students in the Honors Program have an opportunity to take the lead in shaping the culture at UF, prioritizing broad and connective academic inquiry, service to others, and a posture of life-long learning.

When not coaching students, Mike woodworks and grows old-garden roses. Oh, and he exclusively wears animal socks – any guess which species is afoot today?
