     She has survived many difficult times in her life (just like many people) that were intertwined with fantastic moments in life as well. She tackled Alcoholism at a young age of 22 and has been clean & sober since January 1st, 1986. Losing many close loved ones to Cancer, addiction and walked the healing path of grief. She has lived on a roller coaster with her struggle with health issues and chronic pain for 2 decades. In 2012, she went thru 4 full joint replacements to walk and LIVE again. Not only did she get back on her feet, she is living the life to the fullest once again! She finds the BEST in each day and lives by it.

     For years she has worn many hats as a personal coach, coach trainer, girl geek and mentor with a best selling authors coaching company. In addition, she has her BS in Psychology through Upper Iowa University and her Masters in Counseling Studies and Masters in General Psychology through Capella University. 

      Merna has lived in SW Florida since early 2012 (Lived on Sanibel Island, FL in the 80s), but she still is an Iowa girl at heart where she was born and raised. She has been coming to SW Florida since she was a kid with many close family members living here since the 60s. Her life overflow-eth with family, friends, her unbreakable Faith in God, love for music, volunteering, Swalty Computer Business, teaching in higher education, maintaining her health, enjoying island life, seeking her adrenaline junkie needs in a healthy manner :) and trying to keep it all straight. After all, in the end the journey of life and the people in our lives are all that truly matter. 

I LOVE technology so you don't have to!
