Kerri is fresh out of college and already a Midwesterner in the making! East Coast born and raised, she's looking forward to seeing all of what Iowa and the Cedar Valley have to offer. Originally from a small town only forty-five minutes away from Scranton (the Electric City) Pennsylvania; Kerri grew up a fan of most New York sports teams with a special love for the Yankees. She studied Broadcast and Digital Journalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University in Central New York. Fun fact: Kerri actually minored in Philosophy, so make sure not to get her talking too much about the meaning of the universe...she'll be chatting you up until she's blue in the face. Kerri graduated college in May of 2020 otherwise known as one of the worst times in history to enter the job market. Just like a baby, it took her nine months to fully form and be pushed out of her parents' place. Kerri loves anything to do with pop culture and music, so being in this business is a blessing for her. Hopefully, she can bring you some laughs, music news, and occasionally a few puns when you tune in to Marks in the Morning every weekday. When she's not on your radio you can probably find her drinking wine, bingeing reality tv, or looking up whatever Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are up to. If you see Kerri anywhere around the Cedar Valley make sure to say hello; she swears she's smiling underneath her mask!
