"I am honored to work each day with patients and families who are working hard to regain equilibrium after an injury or illness. Each day I have a chance to support families through a very challenging time period so they can help support their loved one to make a complete recovery using all of the resources and technologies available for rehabilitation."


Kerri works closely with adults who have a new trauma injury or newly diagnosed neurological illness and their families. She has extensive experience in mental health service settings, practice in addiction services and advanced skills in navigating systems and advocacy. Kerri appreciates an opportunity to partner with a patient in recovery to meet the patient’s goals, and build a trusting relationship. At home, Kerri spends time with her family, including 2 boys who like to play a lot of soccer and read anything about Star Wars. Kerri also spends a fair amount of time grooming her Labrador/Border Collie Mix, Molly.
