About Keri 

Making a positive impact is the driving force behind everything I do. I have vast experience in building relationships and have honed communication and people skills throughout my life. I value diversity of thought and am effective in working with people from different backgrounds, experiences, and belief systems. I am an engaged community member and have been involved in the St. Peter and surrounding area for 15 years working, volunteering, and serving on various boards and committees. 

My family and I have lived in St. Peter for over 5 years. Although my husband farms outside of St. Peter, we chose to build a home and raise our family here to be a part of this vibrant community. We have two young children, our son who just started Kindergarten in the St. Peter School District and our daughter who attends preschool at a local childcare center. We love St. Peter and the sense of belonging we feel in this community. I want everyone to feel that same sense of community, whether you've lived here your whole life or if you are a newcomer, and everyone in between.
