Representative Eric Meyer moved to Arizona when he was seven years old, attending Cocopah Elementary School and Chaparral High School. He earned a degree in Economics from the University of Southern California and his medical degree from University of Arizona Medical School. His post-graduate training was in the specialty of emergency medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University. He practiced Medicine in Portland’s Providence Emergency Department, and was Director of that department from 1993 to 1995.

Dr. Meyer returned to Arizona in 1996 with his wife, Sarah Snell, also a physician, and their two children. While his wife concentrates on her practice, Dr. Meyer serves as an elected representative in the Arizona state legislature, and just completed two four year terms on the Scottsdale School District Governing Board. 

A member of the Children’s Museum of Phoenix Board of Directors, and the Scottsdale Unified School District All-City Athlete Banquet Board, Rep. Meyer is a dedicated advocate for children. He has also served as a Legislative Liaison for the Scottsdale Parent Council, PTO President for Arcadia Neighborhood Learning Center, and Scottsdale Unified School District Budget Committee member.

Rep. Meyer believes strong public schools are the bedrock of Arizona’s future. As a school board member for the past 8 years, he has gained intimate knowledge of our school’s needs, and has vigorously worked both as a parent and elected official to ensure our schools and teachers remain a priority in the state legislature. He has improved academic achievement and rigor district-wide, increased graduation requirements and expanded class offerings. Dr. Meyer is committed to continuing his objective of ensuring every student is prepared for success from the early formative years, to college, and thereafter.

Dr. Meyer’s unique background in economics and medicine has given him an insight and ability to understand and address the growing problems of access to quality, affordable health care, especially for our children, and to identify ways to work for solutions in strengthening our state economy. Besides his two children, Rep. Meyer’s proudest achievement is serving on the Scottsdale School Board.

He is enthusiastic to serve his 3rd term for his constituents in District 28, and is a ranking member of Health and Education Committees.
