Keri joined Dake Wells Architecture in 2020, bringing with her two decades of experience in marketing and operations within the architectural industry. Presented with countless opportunities over the years to evolve as a professional and to explore her interests as an individual, Keri's experience is as broad as it is deep. She has successfully led the development of "a gazillion" (her words) SOQs; written and edited published books; led strategic planning and rebranding efforts; and coordinated photoshoots, awards entries, software rollouts, and events, among many other things.
Born, raised, and educated in Oklahoma, Keri spent her early childhood "holding the flashlight" for her industrious, DIY parents as they tackled every new challenge that lay before them. This early exposure to hard work and ingenuity taught her to know the value and deep satisfaction of persisting through a challenge until it is solved. She brings this understanding to her work.
A proud Kansas Citian since 2004, Keri leads Dake Wells Architecture's marketing and business development efforts from the firm's KC office.
