I left behind the corporate gray of banking for the colorful world of kids. I had three children and adopted two more. I am the very imperfect Merrill family manager and the founder of iMOM. I love to analyze life, ponder possibilities and pray for opportunities, which makes for a very busy and messy house! I live in Tampa, Florida, with my handsome husband — Family First founder and author Mark Merrill — and two, or depending on the day, up to five of my children ages twenty-one to twenty-six. On those days, I happily forsake all other responsibilities to run a bed and breakfast and laundromat for my family.
