What I'm passionate about:
I am passionate about almost everything I do. I love connecting with people and I truly enjoy knowing I am making a difference in their lives. I love to know I am impacting as many people as I can. A couple of years ago, I realized I wasn't getting any younger and I decided to dedicate more time to my personal health. I was never a runner, but I decided to start. My goal was to run a half marathon. I motivated 11 people, family and friends, who were never runners to take on the same challenge. We all finished. Just this year, I convinced 4 of the original 11 to run a full marathon. We all finished! I am passionate about helping people find the successes within themselves they never knew were possible.

A Note From Keri
"Finding a place where your aging parents or family can spend their days is one of the hardest decisions an adult child can make. We want to see our senior family members thrive and feel independent as long as possible. We want them to know we love them and that we are dedicated to helping them make the most well-informed and comfortable decisions for their care. As your Senior Living Advisor, I am dedicated to educating you about senior care options and finding the solution that best meets the needs of your family."
