Born and raised in NW Ohio, Merri taught speech, communications, English and theatre for 16 years. An introvert, Merri first found her voice as a harmonizing singer and today sings with Someone's Daughter from Toledo. When not singing Merri enjoys camping and building bonfires. Involved with theatre, Merri expanded her educational focus while performing in and directing high school, community and college productions.
In 2000 Merri acted on the wish to help adults like herself feel good at the end of the day when she started the company, Breaking Down Barriers. At the time her business focused on communication self-management and leadership development. Today, under the name BDB Communication, Merri has the altered focus of supporting attorneys who desire speaking confidence through self-management, relationship development and presentation support.
Her clients include solo practitioners, the Columbus Bar Association, small firms, the Ohio Attorney General's Office and the Ohio Supreme Court. Helping them speak with confidence in front of an audience, in court, when networking or in meetings, she helps individuals find their voice and lights a fire under them to use it.
