Associate Director, Employer Relations
Kagin Commons, 102
Hello! I’m Kerri and I use she/her pronouns. I have been at Macalester since 2013.
I was a first generation college student my first year of school. I struggled academically my first semester and it was a wake-up call for me. I worked hard to turn things around which included learning how to manage my time more effectively. Unfortunately, I did not do any internships while in school. I really think I would have benefitted from that type of experience and wish I would have utilized my school’s career center more.
I worked multiple part time jobs during college to pay my bills and rent. My career in higher education started in 2003 and I have been hooked ever since.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Applied Psychology and a Master’s degree in Social Responsibility from St. Cloud State University. I also have a mini MBA in Nonprofit Organizations from the University of St. Thomas.
Outside of work I enjoy the following: hiking (especially MN State parks), spending time with my husband, kids (10 & 13). and golden retriever, listening to music, cooking, reading and going for walks.
