Meet Kerri Hackstock



Kerri Hackstock serves as the Vice President of Achieve Accreditation. Her responsibilities include: business development support, operations management, client relationships and corporate communications. Kerri also maintains responsibilities in hands-on accreditation readiness consulting. Kerri is celebrating a 15-year career in the senior living industry in advancing leadership roles. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Lewis University.


“I enjoy assisting providers with accreditation readiness. It allows me to utilize both my industry knowledge and my counseling skills,” Kerri said.


Kerri began working with Achieve Accreditation in 2012 and she enjoys helping both clients and consultants.


“The thing I enjoy most about my role at Achieve Accreditation is getting to help people,” Kerri said. “I have an active role with both our clients and our consultants which allows me to help both continuously improve.”


Vice President of Achieve Accreditation Kristin Bratcher enjoys working alongside Kerri because Kerri is dedicated to her work, but also makes work fun, Kristin said.

“Kerri is so easy to work with,” Kristin said. “She is approachable, processes the information provided to her and has strong critical thinking skills. She is a true leader and always finds the positive in every situation.”


Kerri's dedication is evident in the way she interacts with her clients and coworkers.


“Kerri consistently receives praise from clients specific to both her interpersonal skills and her Joint Commission Accreditation readiness knowledge. Clients share that she is super knowledgeable and very hands-on in rolling up her sleeves and helping us to get the job done," President/Founder Achieve Accreditation Kathleen O’Connor said.


In her free time, Kerri likes spending time with her family. Her four-year-old and two-year-old keep her and her husband very busy. She also enjoys true crime shows like Dateline. Kerri hopes to check Greece off her bucket list one day. Kerri said she is the happiest when she is with her family and friends, or when her co-workers and clients succeed.


“One major thing I have learned throughout my time at Achieve Accreditation is that even in the craziest of times, people come together when it matters most,” Kerri said. “The past few years have been very tough on our industry and the level of commitment and caring that people have shown towards each other and their residents is really amazing.”
