Kerri moved to Winnipeg in 2010 with her two children, Kaitlyn and Ty, giving up small-town living for the big city life. Coming from a close-knit family, she looks forward to continuing family traditions with her children and future generations. Family is very important to her.

Kerri spent eight years working at Assiniboine Park Conservancy as assistant manager, memberships, where she learned about administration, customer service and management. Previously, she gave her time working with children and at-risk youth in a high school setting, as well as a library technician, which enabled her to pass on her love of reading and books to students of all ages.

She loves the outdoors all year long, walking, reading, knitting, travelling and spending time with family. She is passionate about the environment and making a difference to preserve for the future. Kerri believes love is kindness and understanding. She is a great listener and always ready to jump in and help anyone in need.

Kerri feels privileged and truly blessed to be a part of the League and looks forward to contributing to its success.
