Mercedes Prodan - Romano Law

Mercedes Prodan

Chief of Staff


Mercedes is passionate about arming others with the power and knowledge to build strong routines that protect work-life balance.  After recognizing how much mindfulness transformed her own mindset, Mercedes began sharing strategies and resources needed to live a more fulfilling life.  Mercedes is a certified Mindful Leader and soon-to-be Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction instructor.

She spent several years working in law enforcement where she heavily advocated for employee rights and mental health benefits before shifting her career to align more with her passion - people & culture.  She began working in management consulting, where she helped to develop stronger organizations through leadership development and coaching, maintained a strong focus on employee engagement and worked to improve business operations by identifying friction points.  In her current role as Chief of Staff, Mercedes works with her team to promote communication, alignment, goals, engagement and recognition.

She resides in the Greater Cleveland area with her family, pets and over 200 (thriving) houseplants.  In her spare time, she enjoys practicing meditation, exploring and appreciating nature and fostering dogs for her local animal rescue.

Her favorite quote: "We know from research that growth is actually contagious, so if you want to reach your goals, you've got to get around people that are going in the same direction you want to be going, and you will catch the success."  - Dr. Henry Cloud
