Monica Epperson is the Chairman and CEO of Blended Love, Inc., an innovative nonprofit addressing divorce and family change through the classroom. She founded Blended Love in 2008 with a mission to bring hope and camaraderie to the child of divorce through the classroom.

As a certified teacher and graduate of Northeastern State University, Epperson can relate to the changing dynamics of today's classroom. Aside from the growing mandates on coursework and academic accountability, there is also the emotional management of today's student. Coming from a divorced home as a child she can empathize with the uncertainty students face and the interference with absorbing necessary curriculum. And yet, as a teacher she can identify with the frustration of discipline and organization that can accompany a child of divorce.

Monica speaks locally as the "voice" of the child of divorce, and is also a children's author. She wrote her first book in 2007, A Heart with Two Homes, and another in 2011, Bounce.

Monica enjoys sharing her newfound passion for running and fitness, and the role it plays in her professional, family, and social life.
