2ND ACT: Kerri-Lee Mayland
October 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Being Anchored While Designing a Dream
You may know Kerri-Lee from her tenure as an anchor for NBC CT. However, Kerri-Lee knew something wasn’t right. Her health was declining due to chronic Lyme Disease, and at the same time, came the unthinkable — a global pandemic that could be deadly for the immunocompromised. The only way she could continue her daily anchoring duties was to rely on medication, which would effectively leave her without an immune system — not an option. During her temporary hiatus from the news desk, she recognized this as an opportunity to try something new and created the Kerri-Lee Mayland Company, an interior design company. Her philosophy is that design should be available to everyone no matter their budget. When asked what her design style is by clients her answer is always — “Yours.”
Kerri-Lee will share how she took a chance on a long-held dream that had quietly been simmering in her soul. She will inspire the audience to give their own dreams a chance too. It’s never too late to try.
