Mercedes grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. She received her BA in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in mixed media. From there, she moved to NYC to pursue her love of design at NYSID and earned an Associate Degree in Interior Design. She worked for several notable design firms before joining the MWI team in 2013.
