Meet The Team
Kerri is Co-founder and Manager of Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary.
Growing up on a dairy farm in Northern Ireland, Kerri spent her life surrounded by animals. She knew from a young age that she wanted to work with animals but wasn’t sure what direction to take.
In 2013, after finishing her Zoology degree in Belfast, Kerri moved to Thailand and also worked on the GVI Elephant Reintroduction Project for 19 months.
This is where her eyes were opened to the elephant situation in Asia and since then, has been working on ways to help the elephants and spread awareness.
Kerri became a trustee for Thailand Elephants to work together in sharing knowledge and experience to better enhance the success of KS Elephant Sanctuary and Thailand Elephants.
Fluent in the local Karen language, Packinyaw; Packinyaw is a unique language shared amongst Karen people, but varies greatly between communities - Kerri's favourite phrase is "Da Bah No Me Bah" - meaning No worries :)
