I am Mercedes and I am a San Diego Native! My path of life first started at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise where I received my Associates Degree in Visual Communications. After that, I decided to continue my education at The Art Institute of San Diego where I received my bachelors degree studying Fashion Marketing and Management in March of 2017. While I was finishing up my bachelors I decided to become a Yoga Instructor at the Wellness Lounge. This is where I met my mentor Jen. She came to one of our trainings and introduced us to doTERRA and the amazing benefits that come from the oils! I resonated with Jens story of needing pharmaceuticals after a horrific car accident. In 2011, I was diagnosed with Pancreatitis. This was supposed to leave me in pain for the rest of my life. To top it all off I also suffer from chronic migraines. I was sick of taking over-the-counter medicine almost every day for my pain. I NEEDED to change something in my life, so I decided to give doTERRA a try. YOU GUYS, let me tell you these Essential Oils have truly changed my life and from then on, I was HOOKED!
After that I decided to become a Wellness Advocate because I HAD to help people. I had to show them that there is another alternative to healing ones self and it is SO much better than what the Doctors are giving you!
My true passion in life is helping and healing people through yoga and all natural, holistic oils!
