Kerith grew up in a multi-generational household full of dysfunction but lacking in inspiration or empowerment. Middle school was an exceptionally challenging time in her life – compounded by the death of her beloved grandmother – but the journey was made manageable when she connected with two inspiring young women, who remain her closest friends to this day. College was a transformational experience where she discovered her voice and has been empowering others to change their own futures. Kerith has worked in many social justice causes, currently at AltaMed. Kerith lives in Santa Ana with her husband. She graduated from UCLA with a BA in History and from Wharton with an MBA.
