More about Merry: Merry was born and raised in Riverdale, GA, so she’s definitely a southern gal. Her lengthy love affair with books doesn’t mean she doesn’t have room for love of the law; it just means there’s already good company in her heart. She loves to cook, bake, read fiction, and go on adventures with her husband. She is a huge foodie who is always looking for the next food adventure in Boston. She is a happy chatterbox willing to talk about anything from good books to good eats. Prior to attending law school, Merry worked at a gaming company as their licensing associate then promoted to eCommerce Manager, where she gained many skills including strategic planning and managing. She later joined a consulting firm as their Communications Manager and rebranded the company, launched a new website, and redefined their brand positioning. Her legal interests currently are transactional or venture capital law.
