Dr Merle Williams was born and raised in Durban and graduated from the University of KwaZulu Natal. During the year, following her graduation, she worked in Cape Town and Kimberley.
After experiencing working in small towns, she moved to Johannesburg where she worked for seven years. A combination of factors led her back to Durban, where her parents, siblings and partner are residing.
She describes herself as being open-minded, empathetic and bubbly, once you get to know her. She is interested in and loves the joys of ballroom and Latin dancing. Dr Williams says: "Ideally, I would like my work and working environment to align more closely with my core beliefs. I want to enjoy what I do and believe in what I do while still helping others. My search for this ideal has led me to the Renewal Institute. It feels like the right fit for me and I am excited to join this dynamic company."
She is consulting from the Durban and Umhlanga branches in KwaZulu Natal.
