Animals Behind Herbivore: Mercedes!

Animals Behind Herbivore: Mercedes! Meet Mercedes! Mercedes is the newest member of the Herbivore team, but arguably the most enthusiastic. When she's not eating entire watermelons with a spoon, drinking iced Americanos, and providing great customer service, Mercedes likes to hike with her vegan girlfriends, listen to Janis Joplin cassettes, and spend quality time with her partner and her dog Milton. If you see Mercedes in the store, go ahead and strike up a conversation about anything-- I guarantee you will leave laughing or smiling, and probably on your way to Back To Eden for vegan and gluten-free desserts that are, in her own words, "to die for." Read on to learn more about Mercedes's Herbivore Story...

Krysti is familiar with all our vendors and wholesale customers and deals with all things IT, and we would not survive without her! Experience her sparkling (or should I say bubbly?) personality below and enjoy her very unique Herbivore Story...
