Mercedes 01-2017 (2)

Mercedes started working as a Kennel Assistant for a local veterinary clinic when she was a junior in high school, and worked her way up to Veterinary Assistant before moving to South Town Animal Hospital and is currently training as a Veterinary Technician. Knowing she can help with pets’ treatment when they’re in her hands gives her a tremendous sense of satisfaction: “My three dogs mean the world to me, and knowing that I can help give them and other pets a long happy life gives me a good feeling that I don’t ever want to lose”.

When she’s not caring for our patients, Mercedes likes spending time with her Family and friends, as well as playing sports and other outdoor activities.
