Merri Dee is credited with being a pioneer and trailblazer for women of color who today enjoy high profile roles in media and broadcasting.

Her 50 years in radio, television, stage and voice-over are legendary. Merri Dee is a strong voice and advocate for victims of gun violence. 

Her near-death experience of being stalked, kidnapped and nearly killed continues to inspire others that they can overcome anything. 

"Merri Dee recently gave a keynote to our national convention.  Her personal and professional story was incredibly compelling.  She had our audience engaged from the moment she walked on stage until the standing ovations subsided."  

A. Santiago, INHSA 2019

Welcome to this
Empowering Space!

As you will learn from my journey, each of us has inner strength that we often are not compelled to tap until we are absolutely forced. That is the blessing of adversity: It is intended to make us strong, from the inside-out.


Your journey through adversity can deepen your faith, and it can heal you—heart and soul—through the power of forgiveness and grace. If you truly desire to triumph over those who have treated you in ways that they would not want to be treated, I know you can—because I did.


Much love to you!
