Of the many satisfactions inherent in her position, Keri particularly enjoys the variety: “I love the different types of cases and challenges I work on every day. I am constantly learning something new and it never gets boring.” Aside from her daily legal practice, Keri contributes her professional skills to assist the less fortunate in the community and in fact decided to pursue a career in law with that goal in mind. She says, “I wanted to advocate for and improve the lives of people who would not otherwise have a voice.” Keri is a lifelong resident of Atlanta and in her spare time volunteers with Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, the Truancy Intervention Project and the International Women’s House.
