Merida lives in Medina Ohio with her daughter, Laura and grandson Ian, her Yorkie-poo deva puppy, two huge cats, a gerbil and fish. She loves relating to people and has her own local social meet-up network which has grown to over 300 people and still growing. She has brought together people from all walks of life, all of whom were once lonely and alone due to divorce, death, and relocation. Her classes are highly sought after and people love her down-to-earth way of relating the information she shares. Merida is just a country girl at heart and has always had the desire to change lives for the better.
