After attaining the required experience for certification, Kerri worked for a decade in private industry, first as an Assistant Controller for a nationwide access control contractor and subsequently as an Internal Audit Manager for a Government Defense Contractor.

In 2005, the Demarse family left the hectic city life in Southern California for a slower paced lifestyle in beautiful Idaho. She and her family firmly embraced the Idaho way of life by becoming involved in 4-H, which has included raising and showing horses, sheep, swine and cattle. In her free time, Kerri is active in church and loves to sing and spend time with her kids and her beloved black lab, Kevin.
