He is a Charlotte native and the fifth of Dr. Merritt’s six children! He comments “working with WCWC allows me to utilize my natural skillset, my passion, where I want to steer my career further, and my desire to help people improve their health! I’m very excited to build on my experience and grow as a healthcare professional with Weddington Wellness! I’ve known the team my whole life and they’re a pretty great group of people 😉 ”
His hobbies and interests are abundant and diverse, and he loves to stay busy during his free time. Most of all, he loves music, going to events with his friends, traveling, and doing anything outdoors – especially kayaking, backpacking/camping, snowboarding/skateboarding, taking his dog on hikes and day trips, etc. And of course, he LOVES fitness and health; he is always looking up nutrition facts and their sources, exercises/stretches for injury prevention and functional mobility, and loves constantly learning more about the body to help it perform its best!
