Born and raised in Colorado, Kerry learned to love nature, animals, and photography at a young age. She slowly moved north and west, and landed in Juneau Alaska in 1981 where she has lived ever since. Earning a BA in Environmental Biology, an MS in Forest Ecology, and an MPA in Resource Management, she has a 30+ year career in the natural resources field. She retired in 2011 and started spending more time pursuing photography.
Kerry developed a tremor in her hand in 2015, and was ultimately diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2016. Although photography is more of a challenge as the disease progresses, the joy it provides overcomes many difficulties. In addition to nature photography, she also volunteers her skills at the local humane society to try and help shelter animals find good homes.
