The IvyWise Team

Merrily Bodell

Chief Operating Officer

Merrily is responsible for managing all aspects of our operations in order to maintain IvyWise’s commitment to clients, impeccable service and outstanding results. She also works closely with our CEO on strategic planning and business development.

With a BS from Georgetown and an MBA from NYU‘s Stern School of Business, she spent the early years of her career in special events before moving to management positions in financial services, fitness, and education. Prior to her tenure with IvyWise, Merrily was at The Princeton Review for nearly a decade in senior management.

Merrily serves on the board of School the World and is deeply involved in special education. When not buried in spreadsheets, Merrily loves boating and all things domestic– cooking, baking, home improvements, crafting, and she still throws a mean party!
