Jan Merz’s enthusiasm and energy have inspired many as she travels with our Bucket Fillers Team. Since 2007, she has brought over 500 lively and animated presentations to both children and adults at schools, businesses, hospitals, and conferences across the country.
Jan has loved working with children her whole life, from summer camps and church to the public school classroom, where she retired after 33 years as a junior high and middle school choral director and drama teacher. Her Bachelor of Arts degree was earned at Alma College and her graduate work was done at Oakland University.
Jan resides in Clarkston, Michigan with her bucketfilling husband, John. They are very proud of their adult children: son, Todd and his wife, Shawna; and daughter, Kelsey.
