"One quality that I love about Gerrianne is that she is passionate in everything she does,” Kristin said. “Gerrianne has a big heart and that shows in the respect she has from both her clients and colleagues."
Outside of work, Gerrianne spends most of her time taking her two children to and from their various activities. She enjoys seeing them practice activities they love, especially when they work hard and achieve their goals. In her free time, she also enjoys reading, yoga, playing the piano and hiking.
