MEET KERRI

Kerri grew up in Shawnee, where she attended elementary through middle school and graduated from Dale High School.  Her family was active in the community, playing sports at the YMCA and attending a local church.  Her dad, retired from Shawnee Milling Company, where he served as union president for a period of time. Her mom retired from Shawnee Middle School where she worked as a Secretary and a member of the American Federation of Teachers Union.  Her parents' contributions in the community instilled in Kerri a desire to lead and to serve others.  

 

After high school graduation, Kerri enrolled in Oklahoma State University - Oklahoma City campus.  At the age of 19, she made the choice to serve her country and joined the Army.  After serving 4 years at Fort Carson, CO and completing a tour of duty in Bosnia, Kerri came home to Oklahoma to pursue a degree in criminal justice and joined the Oklahoma National Guard.  She completed an Associate’s Degree at Rose State College, and a Bachelor’s at the University of Oklahoma, all while working full-time.


Kerri understands the value of hard-work and the importance of service.  Through her 23 year military career, she deployed multiple times, serving in Bosnia and Afghanistan.  Kerri was consistently recognized for her leadership ability.  and served in numerous challenging positions throughout her career.  She knows the meaning of servant leadership, and the importance of working as a team to get the job done.  She retired from the military in 2021 and continues to serve through volunteer work.  


Kerri lives in Shawnee with her husband, Colby, who is also a veteran.  Her daughter, Devon, is a cosmetologist in Oklahoma City.

Kerri’s desire to run for office was spurred by the divisiveness in our state legislature.  The extreme partisanship has led to inaction on critical issues.  The lack of cooperation has led to a failure to pass legislation that improves the lives of Oklahomans.  Instead of helping working families, funding public education, improving access to affordable housing and healthcare to include mental healthcare and drug treatment, and creating opportunities and resources for small businesses, the legislature has focused on passing bills that neglect to address the needs of Oklahomans. 

 

Kerri will be the voice of reason and work across partisan lines to fight for the people of House District 26.  She has the drive and determination to get the job done.  Kerri will focus on passing common sense policies that benefit all residents of our community including funding for infrastructure improvement, education, healthcare, and jobs.
