Arianna Merritt


Arianna is an educator, a consultant, the Founder of Arianna’s Random Thoughts, and an athlete. She has a rich background in education with a Master’s of Education Degree in Human Development and Applied Psychology from The University of Toronto (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education) and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Psychology from Carleton University. The focus of her work has been to understand the strategies individuals use to solve problems and applying that knowledge to society.  Her motto is: “You cannot control what will happen to you or how you will be treated by others. You CAN control, however, how you react to the situation. Learning how to do that in a positive manner is key!

Water is an essential aspect of her life. She possesses many characteristics associated with the marine mammal, the“dolphin”: extraverted, fun-loving, exuberant, optimistic, talkative, athletic, helpful, creative, courageous, resilient, caring, complex, strong, adventuresome, and intelligent. Like the dolphin, she is authentic and lives in the now. Like the ocean that the dolphin swims in, she is deep; intuitive; she promotes the search for true meaning in relationships. She is also an idealist. She believes in holistic personal growth and development; therefore, she seeks to empower individuals to become the best they can be. Through her extensive travels, she meets new people and listens to their stories; everyone has a story worth sharing; people crave connection. Just as the dolphin is strengthened by its social bonds, she is working to build a strong network of individuals who are striving to overcome personal issues through sharing and caring with others.  Let’s cause a ripple effect through encouraging others to make a difference in this world!
