Mercedez graduated from Sheldon High School in Eugene. She was a competitive ice skater from age 7 to 15, her days starting at the rink at 6:00 AM and ending her day at the rink at 9:00 PM, with some school in between. Mercedez missed her friends, and decided that a life of normalcy over a a life of competitive skating was the road she would rather travel.
Mercedez attended Lane Community College. She married in 2013, and in 2014 her son Ayden was born. After much soul searching, Mercedez chose the life and health insurance industry to forge a career that allows her to help others in a business that can be challenging . She loves researching and finding a solution to difficult cases. Mercedez is a new addition to Huggins/Bliss Insurance Agency’s Life, Health, and Benefits department.
