Kerie has worked with children for the past 14 years, including the 2016-17 winter with Merinannies. She graduated university with a Bachelor of Education and took her teaching skills to the ski slopes in New Zealand and USA where she taught children as young as 3 to ski and snowboard. In 2009, Kerie moved to Europe where she worked in Italy and France as an au pair before relocating back to NZ. However, that was short-lived as she met her now French husband on the ski slopes of Mt Ruapehu and he brought her back to Europe. In 2013-2014 she worked with a private family in St Moritz, Switzerland as a private tutor/nanny and even a small stint in Azerbaijan as a governess in 2016. Since 2017, Kerie has been based in beautiful lake Annecy where she has been teaching English to adults and children in a maternelle and during kids holiday programs.
