ABOUT THE AUTHOR
As an advocate for, and survivor of, childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence, Merriann’s mission is to empower women to become effective leaders and productive members of society.
A leader in her faith and devotion, Merriann has spent the last 20 years ministering to women victims of abuse and inmates to help them become survivors with a purpose. A Certified Coach, Speaker, and Trainer for The Maxwell Leadership Team, a Board-Certified Christian Counselor, and an Ordained Minister, Merriann demonstrates that survivors can, and should, thrive and succeed.
She has established two successful Non-Profit Organizations to meet the needs of individuals coming out of abusive situations and prison, and established her Business, Infinity & Beyond, LLC, to assist individuals in overcoming limiting self-beliefs in order to achieve all they want in their personal, and professional lives. Her business was established to raise money for her Non-Profit.
In addition to her business and non-profit work, Merriann and her husband of 30 years have facilitated Marriage Bible Studies, Couples Refreshing Weekends, and she has facilitated Celebrate Recovery Groups. Her book Overcome & Born Again donates 100% of the proceeds to crisis shelters across the nation to help in areas where federal funding cannot.
Merriann and her family live in Pocatello, Idaho, and have two amazing sons, along with their beautiful wives, and two precious grandbabies. She considers herself a ‘forever-student’ and loves spending time with her family while serving others to help them become all that they were created to be.
