Administrative Assistant III - Education Programs
Keri enthusiastically joined GMRI in 2023 as the Administrative Assistant for Education Programs, focusing on events management and general people wrangling.
Keri received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan where she majored in Fine Art with a concentration in Painting and Installation work. Following graduation, she was actively involved in the arts and fabrication communities, most notably building sets and props for the Martha Stewart Show and creating/installing elaborate set pieces for high end events throughout the Tri-State area.
After moving to New England in 2018, “local” became her focus - managing the studios of Maine artists, working with Portland non-profits like Preble Street and managing production at Sea Bags. A desire to deepen her local impact and to use her creativity and organizational skills for a greater good has led Keri to GMRI.
When not at work Keri continues her painting practice, is a pen pal to incarcerated folks across multiple states and is an avid reader. Otherwise, she can be found swimming, practicing yoga or eating something delicious.
