In 2014, Merissa embarked on a year of challenges that pushed her out of her comfort zone. Pole dancing was one of the first things she tried. Merissa fell in love with the body-positive community and atmosphere of female empowerment that she found at Brass Vixens. When the opportunity to work for a place that fostered a non-competitive and supportive approach to fitness presented itself, she jumped at the chance. You can find her at the admin desk and teaching her signature class AfroTwerk!
