Regional Sales ManagerHome Base: Pinch, WV
I was born and educated in West Virginia, growing up in Braxton County, graduating from Burnsville High School, Glenville State College, and an MA from West Virginia College of Graduate Studies, now Marshall University. My degrees were concentrated in English and Biological Science.
I taught English and Journalism for 11 years at Herbert Hoover High School, Clendenin, WV. My musical experience included the high school band and finally marrying a band director, George Y. Kerr, who taught at Dunbar High School, Dunbar, WV. My musical experience continued as I worked with husband in the family music store for the past 39 years. As an employee of the store in Charleston, WV, I got into the business of representing a band uniform company which ultimately led me to DeMoulin Bros. & Co. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be selling band uniforms.
I continue as the Regional Sales Manager for DeMoulin Bros. & Co. selling all DeMoulin products and accessories as I have done for 30 plus years. I continue to service uniform customers in West Virginia, western Virginia, and southeastern Ohio.
George Y. and I have two children, son George S. Kerr, an educational rep for Music & Arts, in Charleston and daughter Sarah who is a registered pharmacist and works for HealthSmart in Charleston. George S. learned every facet of the music business over the years, having started in the family business in 1981 when he graduated from high school. Also, he is a NAPBIRT certified band instrument repair technician. Daughter Sarah has degrees in music education, music therapy, and a Doctorate in Pharmacy. During her college career at West Virginia University, she was a feature twirler for “The Pride of West Virginia” for four years. Both children were accomplished musicians, George a percussionist and Sarah a clarinetist.
My favorite time is being Nana to my grandchildren, seven-year old Elisha and five-year old Ahava.
