Keri grew up in a small farming/oil well drilling community in south-central Kansas. As the second oldest of
6 children, she quickly learned the value of a dollar and the hard work that went into obtaining that
dollar. Her parents taught her how to be thrifty, spend wisely on necessities, and always have a plan.
Keri went to college to major in business administration and ended up with a diploma in nursing. She loves being in a field where there is diversity and the opportunity to help people plan for their future.
Keri is married with a blended family. She is a mother of five and a grandmother to eight, with another one due in August 2022. She enjoys taking walks, hiking, flower gardening, plants of most kinds, reading, and anything that involves getting together with her family.
