Kerri is the founder of CTZNWELL, a movement to mobilize the wellbeing community into a powerful force for change. Her work was sparked on 9-11, when she lost her step-dad, a fireman, in the towers. She quickly discovered the power of mindfulness, not just as a tool for personal healing, but as a catalyst for collective change. Since then, Kerri has worked passionately to empower individuals, organize communities and fight for justice and wellbeing.
A yoga teacher, public speaker and change-agent – Kerri is recognized across communities for her inspired work to bridge transformational practice with social change and politics. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of wellbeing into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders and policy makers. Her leadership has inspired a movement to democratize wellbeing that is actively organizing around issues of economic justice (Fight for 15), food system reform (Plate of the Union), civic engagement (voteWELL) and more.
