Special Speaker – Susan Merrill, author of “The Passionate Mom”

Publication1Susan Merrill is a hybrid of sorts. She majored in finance but loves people more than numbers. She left behind the corporate gray of banking for the colorful world of kids. She had three children then adopted two more. She is the very imperfect Merrill family manager, the director of iMOM.com, author of The Passionate Mom and blogger at SusanMe.com. She loves to analyze life, ponder possibilities, and pray for opportunity, which makes for a very busy and messy house! She lives in Tampa, Florida, with her handsome husband—Family First founder and author Mark Merrill—and two or, depending on the day, up to five of her children ages seventeen to twenty-two. On those days, she happily forsakes all other responsibilities to run a bed and breakfast and provide laundry service  for college students.
