Merritt Vaughn joined the Brilla team in 2022 as the founding Visual Arts Teacher for Brilla Pax. She graduated from Benedictine College in 2021, where she received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art and Theology. Throughout her four years at Benedictine College, she developed a passion for art therapy, Montessori education, and painting as a spiritual exercise. She served in 2021 as a Seton Teaching Fellow for Pax in Cohort 8, which led her to stay with the Brilla team. Ms. Vaughn enjoys painting, traveling, singing and playing guitar, and all things Kansas City!

There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
