Kerry Andrews is a member of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation and has lived in her community for most of her life. She’s currently the manager of Sports and Recreation for the community and is honoured to play an active role in supporting the wellness of community members. Kerry says, “I look forward to being a role model for my family and community; to being a stronger, healthier version of myself now and long into the future.” Sport played a very big role in Kerry’s life while growing up, she played on quite a few team sports such as volleyball, basketball, badminton and even rugby. Kerry and her husband share a love of golf and this season they plan on introducing the sport to their children.
She’s inspired by her Grandmother, a residential school survivor, and her mother, another strong and resilient woman who not only dealt with rheumatoid arthritis since her late twenties and diabetes but is also a breast cancer survivor. Her husband and children are the most beautiful and amazing blessings in her life, and she says they inspire her to work hard every single day to achieve a stronger, healthier Kerry.
