Exchanging a career in the banking industry for flowers, she completed the CCSF floral design program and worked as a freelancer before joining the McCalls family in 2010. As manager of the Floral Department, Mercedes draws on her breadth of design experience, education, and knowledge of flowers to create beautiful and tailored “floral stories” that transform and elevate corporate events, galas, and weddings. Mercedes has a BS in Economics from the University of San Francisco, is a European Master Certified floral designer, and is an active member of the American Institute of Floral Designers.
