Graduates and Former Resident Updates


2018 Graduate Update

“As a teenager, I began my first diet after being told I was “chubby.” Eventually, my weight loss habits became life-threatening. But at Mercy, I was able to get to the root of my issues. For the first time, I saw my value and worth. I was transformed and began to learn healthy boundaries. After graduating from Mercy, I knew I wanted to help others. I got my bachelor’s in psychology and my master’s in counseling. I developed a passion for balancing health and fitness. I opened a fitness studio and now teach classes and run a holistic health coaching practice to help people discover the healthiest versions of themselves. I have been blessed to marry an amazing man of God. We’ve recently adopted our first two children through foster care and are enjoying time as a new family.”
