Keri was born and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaii, and domestic abuse led her to leave her home on the islands to give her children a life filled with safety, resilience, and healing. Her drive to serve others was born from the support and community resources she received in her times of need. Keri has worked in the financial industry for over 5-years, specializing in consumer lending. As a former victim turned survivor, she uses her past experience to guide FinAbility to develop curriculums and resources to empower other survivors as they journey to become financially independent. Keri holds both a Master's in Educational Leadership and Project Management. The unique combination of these two fields supports FinAbility's educational curriculum AND strategic business development to serve the broader community with outreach events.
