New Belmont Village President Kerr: We Will Adapt to ‘Tremendous Evolution’ of Senior Living

Mercedes Kerr did not speak English when she started middle school in the United States, after moving from Mexico to Texas with her family.

“It was sink or swim,” she says, of being dropped off at school in Houston for her first day.

She is now drawing on those skills as she adapts to a new role: president of Belmont Village. Kerr was named to the position in May and has been on the job about three weeks. Continue reading “New Belmont Village President Kerr: We Will Adapt to ‘Tremendous Evolution’ of Senior Living”
