Mercedes, Lead Front Desk Attendant

Mercedes works as a Front Desk Attendant here at Pet Retreat as has been with us since we opened in Summer 2022. She lives with her husband Jorge and dog Charlie (pictures below!) She loves adventure and seeing new places and things. On her days off you can find her going on a small road trip, fishing, looking for animals in nature, or Trying a new creative outlet! 


She is most excited to be working at the front desk because she gets to build relationships with clients. One of her favorite things is getting to know new people, and seeing all the amazing pets coming through our doors! She has hands on experience working with dogs and pet owners working in other areas of the pet care industry.
