Merritt's Background

Merritt has ten years of professional teaching experience in the public schools.

These days she focuses her teaching on working with adults, sharing her love and knowledge of essential oils.

Merritt is also a small business owner of Illumine, a writer, artist and event planner.


Merritt's Teaching Style & Approach

Merritt likes to mix it up with discussion, lecture, questions and hands on activities. She likes to offer short breaks during class to give people the chance to meet and get to know each other, to share their experiences related to essential oils.

Merritt thinks of herself as a visual learner, and understand people have different learning styles and many people enjoy learning visually. For that reason, she offers lots of examples of real products to show people so they can experience them in real life. She gives students an outline of the class and literature for everyone to follow along during class.
