In 2010 Kerri was diagnosed with breast cancer. Through her journey of treatment and healing, and building her own community of support, she left fear behind and found new ways to manage through the crazy that is life. It included a lot more self care, more time with family (and less time in meetings!), and the openness to ask for and find help.
And then it was time to offer help to answer all the kindness that she received. Kerri has a passion for vintage Liberty of London
silk scarves, which she collected and proudly wore after losing her hair to chemo. She had an idea of how to give back! She set out to start a charitable organization with her sisters, Erika and Kelli, called The Liberty Collective. The trio began collecting and donating colorful scarves for people fighting cancer under this name.
A decade later, as Kerri set out to create liberating change, powered by community — she did what any good Portlander might do and recycled the name — this time for a start-up business. We think it's a pretty great fit and hope you do too. Today, every person that attends a focused LC session receives a vintage Liberty of London scarf, thoughtfully collected and prepared as a thank you, and as a reminder that we are all individually strong, colorful, and vibrant.
