Growing up in the Cleveland area, Kerri learned about service at an early age as her parents were faithful volunteers in all aspects of life, especially with a church-based soup kitchen. They vacationed in state parks, went on regular outings to Metroparks, and spent time visiting museums and engaging in cultural activities. It’s no wonder her career has been in the nonprofit sector.
Kerri has a B.A. in History of Art from The Ohio State University, and a M.A. in Arts Administration from Indiana University. She returned to Columbus after graduate school for a job at the Columbus Museum of Art, where she met Paul. They were married in 1999.
Kerri’s early career included leadership positions in the arts and an adjunct teaching position at Ohio Dominican University. She founded Mollard Consulting, LLC in 2003 and has served more than 100 nonprofits in the last 18 years. As founder and CEO, Kerri leads a team who is dedicated to meeting the fundraising, planning, and board governance needs of nonprofit organizations.
Mollard Consulting grew with the support of Innovate New Albany, where the company operated for three years before moving to the corner of High and Main Streets. Kerri was proud to be included in this video about New Albany and in this article about entrepreneurs.
She is a proud recipient of the 2019 New Albany Chamber of Commerce Delta Award for Outstanding Business Leader.
She currently serves on the Parish Finance Council (PFC) of Church of the Resurrection and as a member of the City of New Albany’s Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA).
She also served on the New Albany High School Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee for New Albany-Plain Local Schools this past school year.
She is a former board member of the New Albany Women’s Network (NAWN) and trustee of her neighborhood HOA, the Enclave at New Albany. She rides annually in Pelotonia with the Girls with Gears peloton, participates in the New Albany Walking Classic and in Healthy New Albany programs, and was a Girls on the Run New Albany assistant coach for two years.
Her son Owen is a senior and her daughter Sarah is a freshman, both at New Albany High School. Her husband, Paul, works at Kenyon College.
