Ms. Merle Ray is an American business strategist, consultant, publisher, trainer, business and life coach. A certified senior professional in both Human Capital Management (HCM) and Organizational Change Management (OCM), Ms. Ray has specialized in the full range of human capital, organizational transformation, and senior leadership in large complex organizations for over 20 years. A current PhD student, Ms. Ray holds a Master of Science degree with a specialization in Leadership from Grand Canyon University and a Bachelor of Science degree with a specialization in Leadership from the College of Biblical Studies. Conferred with an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities, she is affectionately known as “Dr. Ray” in faith-based organizations for her ministry strategy development, personal and professional transformation discussions, and self-help books including: Spiritual Identity: Worldview Wisdom for Women, Six-Figures and Beyond Success, Kings in the Meantime, Curing Our Toxic Faith, and 40-days to Transformation Excellence.

Why work with me

Focus on getting results in your business and career

When working with me, we won’t be settling for vague services, we will only accept proven results. After all, it’s your business & career that’s on the line.

Specialized in getting you unstuck personally

Coaching is a profound transformation and learning process that enables you to change as we co-partner together to see your work accomplished.In coaching, YOU become the change you want to see in an exciting and inspirational process leading to your personal and professional success.

Transformation + Deliverables

There are real differences between professional coaches, consultants, and strategists. Few people are gifted at doing all three successfully, and I’m thankful to be one of them. Choose the transformation experience that works best for YOU, and once we’re done, we can build the solutions you need to get the job done. From pastors and ministries to professionals in business; from books and businesses to online platforms, courses, blueprints, and roadmaps; from personal and professional development to spiritual elevation – a powerful change begins with a powerful connection. You’ve come to the right place to elevate your brilliance, execute your vision, and transform your life!
