Director of Children & Family Services (CFS)
“I love that I get to be a part of the healing process for those who have been wounded, need a place to heal, or just need a place to call home and be loved.”
Kerry first heard of Cookson Hills through Campus Christian Fellowship early in her college career at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK. She came to volunteer with a group of students and from that moment, she fell in love with the ministry of Cookson Hills. Kerry joined Cookson Hills in June 2019 as the Manager of CFS. With grace, hope, and the love of Christ, Kerry oversees and provides support and guidance for our social workers, houseparents, and students. Kerry has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Science, and a concentration in Education from Ashford University and is currently enrolled at Northeastern State University, studying for a Master of Science in counseling with an emphasis on addiction counseling. Today, Kerry is married to Patrick, and together they are the parents of 7 young adults; Shawn, Jesse, Harrison, Molly, Dylan, Micaiah, and Lexi. Outside of the office, you can often find Kerry traveling, volunteering with her church, reading, or playing basketball and volleyball.
