Shortly after Kerri started the organization in early 2018, Erika joined Kerri in LC leadership, forged together by a passion to change business culture while venturing around the world — as well as in life! (Erika has held a 50+ year position as Kerri and Kelli's big sister.) After a business degree that led to a successful advertising career, Erika continued as a consultant, providing strategic leadership and project management for many clients.

Erika ultimately made the decision to take on the critical role of managing her extended family before recently joining Kerri back in business. She has a son and daughter whom have just launched into adulthood. Erika lives on the Puget Sound in Washington State and commutes regularly to Portland for work with The LC.

Kelli brings extensive experience and passion for information design to the LC, along with her own evolved leadership journey in the challenging field of information technology. With an undergrad and Master’s Degree in education, her years as both a teacher in the states and abroad helped shape her current delight in the art of inviting and inspirational idea delivery.

Kelli relishes the transformation of raw material into beautiful, accessible, heart- and mind-shifting content. Her experience with the US Peace Corps and a brief stint with the US State Department nurtured a growing interest in facilitation and training for adults experiencing dramatic and powerful cultural growth, lighting a fire beneath her call to worldwide citizenship. After a dozen years overseas, Kelli lives in beautiful Portland, Oregon with her family, just ten blocks from her identical twin sister Kerri.
