Staff Retirement: Cheers to Carmen!

The MFHS family is blessed with so many experienced health and wellness professionals. The years of experience, level of professionalism and truly kind and generous people who work here are what keep our clients returning day in and day out.

A shining example of one of these family members is Carmen Mercado. Carmen is just about to finish her 29th year at MFHS, as she’s decided it’s time to retire and enjoy life. We want to take a moment and shout out to Carmen the biggest Thank You and Virtual Hug we could from across the organization.

We’ve asked Carmen to tell us a little about her experience and plans for the future:

What did you enjoy most about working at MFHS?
“I love being able to work with the public.”
Tell us a little about what made your work fulfilling?
“I enjoy helping participant nutritionally and personally.”
What will you miss most?
“Working with my co-workers.”
What advice would you give to yourself if you were just starting your career at MFHS?
“Be willing to work and do my best.”
What are you most looking forward to in your retirement?
“I look forward to Traveling, Resting, Shopping and Serving the Lord.”

Additionally, some of Carmen’s co-workers have chimed in to talk about what it is like to be around her.

“It’s difficult to find the right words to thank someone who means so much to me. You have become the biggest mentor in my life. I am so grateful that you took me under your wing when I first started at this company. Your leadership and example has helped me grow into my potential. Truly, I have been blessed to have you in my life. From the bottom of my heart, a big THANK YOU!!” –Jannette Mosquera

“To Carmen, For making a difference in my life and the lives of thousands of others you’ve touched during your 29 years with MFHS and WIC.  Your smile, love, joy, laughter will all be missed. Wishing you a happy and peaceful retirement.” –Katie Hettinger

From all of us at MFHS, we would like to wish Carmen all the best and brightest with a very long, healthy and happy retirement.  Cheers Carmen!
