Board & Staff

Our board members, officers, advisors & staff and volunteers have rich and diverse backgrounds in philosophy and/or psychology and are active in research and the community.  While unique in their skill sets, each member of Merlin CCC shares the belief that what we do in our life matters and that giving back to society is an important part of what it means to be “fully human.”  We even have an organization mascot named Luciano, a.k.a. ‘The Merlin Meower.’  While not formally trained in philosophy or psychology, we believe his sage eyes & distinguished demeanor say it all.
