+ When you aren't at Lead U, what are you doing?

When I’m not wearing my Lead U hat, I’m wearing my teacher hat in Florence township as theatre teacher, I also wear many hats in the professional theatre world as a stage manager, actor, you name it!

+ Who do you view as a leader and why?

I have a very dear friend, Steven, who I have always viewed as a leader. His energy is always attracting attention from others in a positive way, they comfortable confiding in him and he has made sure to pave his own way in the world and I’m proud to look back on all of his successes that continue to push him into the future!

+ What's one thing you remember from Kindergarten or the early years of school?

When I was in second grade my mom finally let me pick my own Halloween costume, and I didn’t want to be anything I used my creative mind to be an alien, who took over a spaceship and was wearing an astronaut costume!

+ If you could time travel, where would you go?

I would like to go to Ancient Greek times, I am a huge theatre nerd and would love to see some original productions of the most historical plays.

+ If you could be a cartoon character for one week, who would it be?

Timmy Turner, I really want fairly odd parents!

Burgers, pizza, tacos. No doubt.

+ If you could ask your pet one question, what would it be?

Do you think I’m annoying?

+ Who would play you in a movie of your life?

Me! There’s only one Kerry :)

+ What is your favorite family or friend tradition?

I had a family tradition that has now become my own tradition. We used to go to Disney every year as a family, but now that we’re older schedules and finances don’t work out the same, but now it’s my mom and I’s tradition, and boy is it a fun one!

+ What is your spirit animal and why?

My spirit animal is definitely a goose. Geese are kind of intimidating and gross at first glance, but in reality they just know who they are and what they want to do and nobody, not even a whole line of cars, will stop them from doing what they want!

+ Most memorable Lead U moment

The most memorable Lead U moment must be the first time I saw our flags. Lead U had been talked about and was being built from the ground, so to see this logo, that used to be an iron on, become a full fledged design on beautiful flags was a culminating moment that what we do works, is important and should be taken seriously!
