Founder / Executive Director
Keri Spencer has spent her entire professional career as an attorney advocating for at risk youth. As a prosecutor in juvenile court, then as an attorney for DHS handling foster care cases, her life's work has been to ensure that the children and youth of her communities are safe, loved and equipped to become healthy, happy, productive adults. Keri gives her time as the co-chair of the sister organization to RISE, Priceless, by hosting awareness events and educating area youth about the dangers of sex trafficking. In her capacity as Executive Director of RISE, Keri tirelessly leads the Board toward seeing RISE opened and operational so that the girls RISE will serve will become survivors living restored lives free of the sex trade.
Married for 24 years, Keri and her husband, Steve have 2 grown daughters. They enjoy spending time at the beach when they are not both traveling for work.
