Kerry attended Westhill Academy and completed her degree in Management with HRM in 2016 before becoming the President of Education and Welfare at RGU:Union.

During this time, she was an Erasmus student in France and this helped her to become the more confident person that she is.

Her interest in RGU:Union began as Vice President of the Mental Wellbeing Society at the Union and mental health remains her key priority and passion. As someone who still struggles with her own mental health, Kerry knows the struggles students face.

Since re-election in March 2017, Kerry has continued to contribute towards national and international events for organisations within the higher education sector, presenting RGU's work on Partnership and various projects to the rest of the world at conferences. Most notably, Kerry was selected by Student Partnerships in Quality Scotland to take part in the exchange phase of a project in Armenian quality assurance. This experience has helped her to realise just how lucky Scotland is to have such strong student participation in quality assurance and governance, as demonstrated by student governors.
