ABOUT Mercy Zolla

I am a professional in business administration, with an MBA, working as a Bank Branch Manager for over 18 years. After moving to Leesburg from Peru in 2017, I continued to work in banking with a personal goal of becoming Branch Manager in America. Currently, I am a Senior Relationship Banker at Truist Bank. Due to my position, I have the opportunity to help hispanic people improve their financial well-being by helping them overcome the language barrier.

I teach Spanish for Travelers to English speakers to help them have better access to real experiences in Latin countries. Additionally, a new passion of mine is to teach about Pre-Incan civilizations in Peru since the Inca civilization’s architecture, Machu Picchu, is appreciated as one of the Wonders of the World.
