Meeker was a professor at the University of California, Three Rivers. She taught history.
She had many books in her office, which was unusual as books were largely seen as archaic.
In the final class of the 2033 school year, she taught about the Antarctic voyage of Ernest Shackleton. When James Zanasiu Jr was caught whispering in class and unable to identify basic information from the lecture, she made him alphabetize her office bookshelves or get dropped from the class.
That night she taught an extra-credit lecture about the history of the Einstein-Rosen bridge, to celebrate the opening of the bridge network. Malte was unable to attend this lecture as Junior had convinced him to participate in the Nudie Run. ("CS:Pilot")
