Interesting facts about Keri:
- Keri received a full ride to college for her mad skills on the French horn. (She later walked away from that scholarship to pursue a hybrid course of study in English and Architecture.)
- Though slightly embarrassed about her inherent ability to pick locks, Keri's natural gift for figuring out how things work has resulted in numerous surprising and handy (and occasionally brow-raising) skills throughout her life.
- A hard-core, classic geek in her youth, Keri developed an early and lasting love for the English language. In private moments, she covertly geeks out in the online AP Stylebook or her library of printed style guides. She believes diagramming sentences is among the more enjoyable pastimes.
- When Keri was six years old, she climbed onto the roof of her childhood home in Oklahoma City wearing a pair of goggles and her dad’s unfurled parachute. She jumped.
