Kerri H
Kerri is a new Floridian, having relocated from Chicago to Saint Augustine less than two short years ago. She just celebrated her sixth wedding anniversary with her Disney obsessed husband, Matthew. They met on the first day of freshman year at DePaul University and have been inseparable ever since. Kerri graduated with her B.A. in English & Dramaturgy and M.A. in Technical Communications. She loves learning a little bit about everything by doing freelance writing/editing projects and giving back via non-profit grant writing. Now a mother of two, she celebrates her September babies, Elliot and June. On any given weekend in Saint Augustine, you’ll likely find her drinking all the coffee while watching her son’s baseball game or looking for shark’s teeth at Mickler’s landing.
