About Dr. Merritt

As the principal of a private organization that has been in business for more than 20 years, and a black woman with a professional degree, I have rare access to the owners of professional service firms, construction companies, technology companies, and financial institutions, just to name a few. My life experience as both a woman and a minority has allowed me to identify with these social issues and driven me to invest my time in working with low-income communities. My level of social capital is rare for women of color, but it allows me to be a bridge to social capital for these communities.
