During her four-year tenure at Charlotte, Meier led the 49ers to three postseason berths - one NCAA Tournament appearance (2003) and two WNIT appearances (2004, 2005) - and a combined overall record of 76-45 (.628). Prior to her appointment as head coach at Charlotte in 2001, the 49ers had only one previous postseason appearance - a WNIT berth in 1990.
In her inaugural campaign at Charlotte, Meier led the 49ers to a 16-13 finish to record their first winning season in eight years. The following season, she guided the 49ers to a 21-9 finish marking the most wins (21) in over a decade at Charlotte. With a 12-2 record in Conference USA play, Meier and the 49ers also earned the school's first-ever C-USA regular-season championship and earned the school's first-ever appearance at the NCAA Tournament.
Prior to Charlotte, Meier spent seven seasons at Tulane University, serving as an associate head coach from 1999-01 and an assistant coach on the Green Wave staff from 1994-99. As a member of the Tulane coaching staff, Meier helped the Green Wave to an overall record of 164-52 (.759) in seven seasons, including the highest ranking in school history (13th by the Associated Press) in 2000 and a school-record 27 wins the same season

Meier began her collegiate coaching career at the University of North Carolina at Asheville where she served as an assistant coach during the 1993-94 season.
Meier's success as a coach is a direct reflection on her playing career as a stand-out at Duke University. A four-year letterwinner for the Blue Devils under head coach Debbie Leonard from 1986–90, Meier's name is scattered throughout the Duke record books.
She currently ranks third all-time in scoring average (16.2 points per game), steals (232), free throws made (447) and free throws attempted (624).
