    Hi,

    My name is Kerri. I am from a small town called Vacherie, LA. I have a wonderful husband named Kenny. We have two beautiful children. A daugther who will be 3 in October. Her name is Keni Claire. We also have a son named Michael who was born on August 6 of this year.

    I currently work for an insurance agency full time, but am looking for a way to be able to stay home with my children.

    I am looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

    God Bless!

    Kerri :)
