What People Are Saying


Praise for Merritt & Master of One Coaching

[Merritt] is a woman of purpose, wanting to make a difference in the world around her and committed to helping others find and live their own purpose. She demonstrates genuine care for those in her presence, her family and her clients, creating a safe space for individuals like me to dig deep, find new possibilities within ourselves, and choose new actions that lead to success. Because of the power of her presence and her mastery of the process, I knew that she would ask that one question that would give me the opportunity to look at myself, my situation, and my goals in a whole new way. She helped me find clarity, build a plan, and created accountability for me to take the next steps to building my own coaching practice.

Coming from someone who has been in the leadership development space for almost twenty years, I would highly recommend Merritt Minnemeyer to help you become the leader you were meant to be, achieve what you most want to achieve, and live a life of abundance.

Kevin Tennant, Founder, Head Coach, Power of Choice Leadership Coaching and Development

I’ve known Merritt for a long time, but I didn’t start working with her as a Coach until recently. I’d gone through my own changes, hit some speed bumps, done some basic work, but Merritt’s approach – personal, empathetic, encouraging – has been not only empowering but a relief! Sometimes it takes someone outside of yourself to remind you how great you can be. Fortunately, when you work with Merritt, you not only get reminded and get new tools to help your journey, but you find a mentor who is proof positive that everything is possible.

Matt Ritchey, Actor/Writer/Director

Working with Merritt was an amazing experience. She is very perceptive and intuitive. In our work together Merritt enabled me to gain clarity on my future career path and supported me in creating my next steps. I am very happy that I had her as my coach!

Prachi Ghildiyal, Certified Professional Coach and Human Resources Professional

Merritt, of Master of One, has been a huge inspiration to me. Her questioning helps guide you to your own truths and she is excellent at getting the leader in you to shine! I highly recommend her program!

Holly Zuver, Senior Financial Analyst, Capture Rx

Merritt is generous, warm, good-humored and respectful. She responds to the issues at hand and also gently pushes to get to the deeper Issues underlying one’s resistance and fears. I’m so glad to have found her—my work, and my life, have grown and my visions for theFuture are more possible, and more likely, than ever.

Chris Wells, Founder & Executive Director of The Secret City

There is a “magic” about you. I’ve been battling with my own shortcomings and you helped me understand what was holding me back and I greatly appreciate that.

Brenda Otto, SunRay Travel

She made us feel like [our] voices and experiences mattered and truly helped us develop through her support and the way she challenged us to think critically and deeply about what mattered to us.

Holly A., Higher Education Leader

Merritt’s thoughtful coaching helped me navigate some complex work challenges and guided me through an eye-opening process to improve several of my business relationships.

Thomas F., Nonprofit Leader

I’ve been “Yoda’d.” Merritt “Yoda’d” me! 

Tim McQueen, Producer, Musician, Entrepreneur, & Community Leader

Success is opportunity meeting preparation. Merritt helps jumpstart that preparation. 

William O., Government Agency Director

From personal experience, I can recommend her as an excellent coach and adviser. 

Constance Stevens, SVP of an international, publicly traded corporation (retired).

Merritt is truly a goddess of coaching. Her warm and caring energy is palpable. I always felt so safe in her presence, which helped me to open up, stand in my vulnerability, and allow myself to be
guided towards the truth. Merritt has a gift of validating someone to their core. With Merritt’s support, I knew I could accomplish any goal. 

Renee Nabatian, Coach & Entrepreneur

Working with Merritt as my coach isn’t what I expected – it is so much better! It’s much more than a list of resources and tasks – she works with me to address my specific personal blocks so that I am
able to get really clear on what I want, then supports me in charting plans to get there. Sometimes it is hard work, and so worth it. I recommend her to anyone. 

Keely Sheehan,
Artist/Designer/Entrepreneur

I appreciate Merritt’s ability to quickly grasp exactly what we needed for our team. More than that, her delivery was spot on and engaging. She walked us through the sensitive topic of diversity in the
workplace in a way that brought us together and helped us learn more about one another. Folks are still talking about it. 

 Richard Heyl de Ortiz, Executive Director, Adoptive and Foster Family
Coalition of New York (AFFCNY)

I thought we were going to work on tangible tasks but this is something bigger. It’s hard for me to think that I should be investing in myself…but then again it is what I seek out every day and you are
like a mentor…you’re a spiritual therapist. When we talked about [my goals] being so close I felt it. And that makes it all worthwhile. I feel grateful that I can talk about this part of me without
judgment and better yet with guidance. I’m excited for what’s to come.

M.C., Entrepreneur

I had never worked with a coach before working with Merritt (Master of One Coaching) and I can’t say enough good things about her and methods. She is laser-focused on her client’s needs, desires,
goals and objectives, often before the client knows what he/she needs or wants. She asks great questions and is able to see where you might be stuck. Over the course of my sessions with Merritt, I
was able to move from a place of confusion to one of clarity. I never would have gotten to that place without working with her. She is passionate, enthusiastic, has a keen eye and gives 100% of herself
to her work and to her clients.

A.T. individual client

I quickly grew to admire Merritt’s sage wisdom, deep capacity for empathy, and stellar communication skills. Her creativity, energy, and initiative drive a team forward, while she also takes careful
measure to ensure all voices are heard. A natural motivator, Merritt is gifted in the ability to draw out potential- in individuals, groups, and programs- by pinpointing key opportunities for growth.
Merritt is a trusted and intuitive leader and educator, one whose counsel and advice I’ve treasured.

 Domiana D., Educator

Merritt is simultaneously the little voice inside your head telling you to take that leap into the unknown to a better life and the outside perspective you need to see the big picture to make that jump and soar.
