Kerrie joined the Harvest library in 2003 and has been active in improving and advancing it ever since. Kerrie has participated in many theological library conferences and is very active within ANZTLA (the Australian and New Zealand Theological Library Association). With a passion for helping people find what they are looking for, and an eye for detail (some call this obsessiveness), Kerrie is certainly fulfilling her calling at Harvest.

Kerrie is married to Tim and they enjoy going for long drives on the weekends and getting away to the beach with their Golden Retriever, Clarence. She is also addicted to Diet Coke and cross-stitch!
