Keri is a Felton resident who grew up in Santa Cruz. After graduating high school, she got a job as a kennel assistant part-time while going to Cabrillo College for welding technology & riding her downhill bike any chance she got. She soon realized she wanted to work with animals full-time, and got a job as a vet assistant at a local hospital. She switched her schooling to veterinary technology at San Juan College, and graduated as a Certified Veterinary Assistant in 2010.
Later that same year, she met the love of her life, a Boulder Creek local, and moved back to the mountains to start their family. Keri has a cat named Raven, and is enjoying her new adventure as a chicken mom to a flock of 10 hens.
