Title: Assistant Director
Phone: (316) 733-9796

Keri joined Butler County Emergency Management in May 2009. Though new to the world of emergency services, Keri brought with her from the private sector a wealth of business and finance knowledge and experience. While in college completing her bachelor's degree in Accounting and Business Administration, she worked as a bank teller and new account representative. After college, she worked as an auditor, billing manager and then departmental project manager with MCI.

In 2010 she became certified as an EMT, and the following year earned her KCEM (Kansas Certified Emergency Manager). In 2012 she successfully completed the coursework to become an EMT-I and then an Advanced EMT. She actively volunteers with the Butler County EMS Reserves and is also a member of the county's Disaster Medical Support Unit (DMSU).

Currently, Keri serves on the Board of Directors of the Kansas Emergency Management Association (KEMA) as the secretary, and she is also a member of the Leadership Butler Class of 2012.

In her spare time, Keri enjoys spending time with her husband of 20 years, Randy, and their three children, Libby, Josh and Emily. When not running to the kids' various church, sports, and school activities, she also finds time to read, play piano, and run or ride bike near their home in Augusta.
