Hi! I’m Merissa V. Grayson, a Wife, Mom, and Step-Mom who wears many other hats, all with one common goal – to transform families and lives around the world.

I’m known as America’s Blended Family Expert, a role that I didn’t seek, but one that I’m honored to serve in.

Part of becoming an expert comes from personal experience. As a stepmom, my husband and I co-parent daily with my stepson’s mother, but trust me – it has been a journey. We’ve been through ups and downs, fights and frustrations, confusion, sadness, and admittedly even anger that can surround divided and blended families. So, when I say, “You’re not alone and I understand where you are,” . . .  I mean it.  But, after personally having to navigate through the legal system and more than eight years of trial and error, I have figured out the most practical methods to co-parent successfully, even when it seems impossible.  Each day I share with others how to implement these methods into their daily lives, so that like my situation, your situation can drastically change and your family can experience what feels like magic – two separate, yet compatible homes filled with love.

The flip side of becoming an expert comes from my Professional experience.  As a Family Law Attorney, I help my clients resolve their legal problems related to child custody, child support, or divorce by collaborating and representing them in court.  As a private Family Law Mediator, I help parents work together to reach an agreement that works best for their divided family.  And as a Co-parenting coach, I provide guidance and set goals to help parents move forward and smoothly transition or peacefully exist as a divided/blended family.

I’m also an Author.  My ground-breaking series, The Business of Co-Parenting, was written for parents who are struggling with either making the transition into a Divided/Blended Family or struggling with co-parenting peacefully to help build a better future for their families.

Passionate about educating and inspiring people, I’m frequently invited to speak at conferences, workshops, schools, churches, legal clinics, non-profits, and many other organizations on topics related to family, business, and self development.  I also facilitate educational and legal seminars and workshops to raise awareness throughout the community and to encourage individuals to be proactive in their personal and legal affairs.

I strongly believe that the more you know, the more informed and empowered decisions you will make.  The more informed decisions you make, the better your ability to prevent, manage, and/or resolve those little (or big) unanticipated issues that inevitably arise in life.
