Merrylue is an honored graduate of the renowned Women’s Leadership program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Her doctorate in organizational leadership and published dissertation from Pepperdine University uncovered the research that resulted in business and leadership practices that directly drive an employee’s decision to stay or leave an organization.

When not working with people leaders, Merrylue enjoys interior design, dreaming up concoctions in her art studio, and writing puppet scripts for the preschool church crowd, who remain her toughest critics to date. She and her husband, James, enjoy being Gram and Gramps to twin girls and a new baby boy.
