Kerri Sands

Special Teams

Kerri joined Good Group Decisions in 2009, first serving as a Staff Associate and then as Vice President of Everything. In those roles she assisted Craig with facilitation, conducted surveys, interviews, and focus group meetings, and prepared meeting reports and strategic plans for our clients. She also provided clients with all aspects of customer service including cost estimating and meeting logistics. And she handled a variety of administrative tasks including marketing, website management, and bookkeeping.

After nine great years working side-by-side with Craig, Kerri has moved north to her personal paradise of Mount Desert Island, Maine. From the island she continues to support Craig and Good Group Decisions with a variety of marketing and administrative tasks, client work, and other special projects. “Special Teams” is a reference to the squad that comes onto the field for special plays (usually kicking plays) in American football. As New England Patriots fans, Craig and Kerri thought this would be an apt description for Kerri’s newest chapter with the company.

Prior to working at Good Group Decisions, Kerri worked with Coastal Enterprises, Inc. as the director of Maine’s Farms for the Future program. In that role she facilitated team planning meetings and guided small business owners to completion of their business plans. She has led workshops on communication, team building, team-based planning, program evaluation, and small business development. In the past, Kerri served as an assistant and Director of Research with the Center for Interim Programs in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she helped college-bound students reenergize their life paths through creative, structured gap year programs.

Kerri has a Masters degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Sustainability from the University of Southern Maine and a Bachelors degree in Human Ecology from the College of the Atlantic. She and her partner Ed can be found on Mount Desert Island, hiking, biking, paddling, and maintaining an absurdly vast collection of houseplants.
