Kerrie’s goal is to ensure that each bride who walks through their door feels the excitement and emotion that comes with choosing a gown. Kerrie spoke on leadership and entrepreneurship in 2017 at Kappa Delta’s National Convention and in 2016 as part of Florida State University’s 7 Under 30 leadership summit.
