Episode 42: It got to a point where the lifestyle of being in politics was not sustainable and she knew deep down it was time to leave. No plan or direction of what was next for her, Kerri quit her job in Washington D.C. and moved back home to Boston to see where’d she would end up. Today she is a health and wellness coach who connects with people and tries to help them live the life of their dreams in this moment. Raised in Andover, MA she knew from the age of 12 that she wanted to go to college in D.C. and eventually wanted to work in politics. Everything in her life had always been about making a difference in people’s lives and working in this environment would allow her to help people on a massive scale.
