About Mercedes

Hi my name is Mercedes. Fresh out of undergrad I decided I wasn't done with school, so I am attending chiropractic school to get my doctorate degree currently. I have an extremely good understanding of the human anatomy. In fact the only A+ grade I have ever gotten in my life, was in gross anatomy (have to toot my own horn here). Born in Seattle I was raised an athlete playing soccer until midway through college when I faced injury and had to stop playing. Covid introduced me to running and I now train for races regularly. Believe it or not I used to despise running, so if running isn’t your thing no worries I understand it can be very boring. I have experience with the weight room through my olympic powerlifting classes, we also lifted as soccer athletes in school. Recently I worked at F45 in San Fran, there I not only coached but taught my own weekend mobility and recovery classes. As a student of chiropractics I understand injury and rehab very well. If you are facing injury or have a goal to reach my outlook is that this will be a team effort to get you where you want to be.

Other fun facts:
- I used to be a CNA
- I am addicted to bubble tea. (it got so bad I had to learn how to make it my self)
- I speak some Norwegian
- I am vegan
- I suck at surfing but want to get better at it
