A proud Bay Stater, Keri Thompson was born in Boston, grew up in the suburb of Acton, and chose to make the South Shore her permanent home a few years ago. After attending Acton-Boxborough public schools, Keri graduated with a BS in Speech Communication from Bradley University in Peoria, IL—she met an obscure State Senator named Barack Obama, who convinced her to ditch her Republican roots and become a political activist. She has graduate degrees from Pepperdine, UT Austin, and is currently a senior lecturer at Emerson College.
