Ronni Merritt serves as the Receptionist and Administrative Assistant at ACME where she supports both the Administrative and Operations teams. She is focused on office operations and expense reporting, helping with operational projects internally and externally. She previously worked as an Assistant Site Coordinator and as a Content Marketing intern in London.
Ronni is a graduate from Hult International Business School, London, with a B.A. in International Business with a Concentration in Marketing. She is a Bay Area native and now resides in San Francisco.
Ronni is a proud San Francisco native, which she considers to be a rare occurrence today. She grew up in the city while attending French-American International School for 13 years. While attending an international school, she was able to absorb different languages and ideologies from teachers, peers, and friends coming from dozens of countries around the world.
Playing sports was always a passion. From a young age, one could almost certainly find Ronni afterschool on a tennis court, soccer field, or running around the Bay Area for a cross country or track & field meet. At 13, Ronni joined her soccer team on a trip to compete in tournaments around Northern Ireland, Scotland, and the U.K. This ignited a passion and obsession with geography and international travel.
Wanting to grow as a global citizen and explore more of the world, Ronni jumped on every travel opportunity that presented itself. She was able to take language courses in China, live with a family in Paris for a month to expand her linguistic skills, visit the Berlin wall for its 50th anniversary, meander the streets of Amsterdam while on a 12-hour layover, debate model U.N. ideas in Jerusalem, teach English in Bosnia, crash a wedding reception party in India, and celebrate Nava Varsha with locals in Nepal all by the time she was 18.
These moments and adventures helped shape Ronni, whose appetite for learning and consuming new cultures led her on a journey across the pond after her senior year of high school, where London became her new home. While studying in a new city, she was able to work and collaborate with peers on a range of projects. From rebranding, designing a website, building an app, generating digital content, or mocking up a business plan, she was always up for a challenge innovating and learning the functionality of businesses.
With Hult being one of the most international universities in the world, Ronni felt right at home expanding friendships across continents. With a particular fascination and admiration of Scandinavia, she spent a summer in Oslo, where she stretched her studies and obtained two certifications: Intercultural Management – A Scandinavian Perspective and Norwegian Culture, Life, and Society.
On a given weekend, you may find Ronni playing tennis with friends, taking a yoga or pilates class, watching a Warriors basketball game, or spending time at the beach with her dog Monster.
