JuliaJulia Merritt graduated from Amsterdam High and attended FM.  She has lived in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas, South Korea, and Germany.  Today, she resides in Perth, NY with her husband Anthony.  They have three children, Alicia, Anthony, and Nicole, and a granddaughter, Kaydence who, Merritt tells us, wants to take classes at FM one day. 

Merritt earned an A.A.S. in Computer Science from Pikes Peak Community College, a B.S. in Computer Science from College of Engineering at Kansas State University, and an M.I.S.M. from Keller Graduate School, with Distinction.

She has over 20 years of  software experience, most recently as a Staff Software Engineer for Lockheed Martin.   Merritt’s professional organizations included Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), National Engineers Week Train the Trainer, and First Robotics.  She enjoys home improvement, traveling, motorcycling, Zumba, volunteering at the Amsterdam YMCA, and spending time with her family.

“I have traveled all over the world and bring back my experiences in everything that I do,” says Merritt. “I advise my students to put 100% effort into whatever they choose to do, to dream big, and to never, ever give up because you are who you want to be.”
