Kerri grew up in the hospitality industry and knows the ins and outs of event planning. From an early age, she knew she belonged in hospitality but had a knack for Accounting. In 2007, Kerri graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Accounting and IT. She went on to work at a Public Accounting firm in Chicago but still had the desire for the fast paced world of hospitality. In 2012, she joined Access to lead the Chicago team as Partner and Director of Finance. This transition helped her use her experience and knowledge of Chicago hotels in her day to day work life. In her free time, Kerri loves rooting on her local Chicago sports teams with her husband Matt.
