Kyerra currently works for The Supreme Court of Missouri, Office of State Court Administrators in Civil Management Analysis. Although this is a newer endeavor from her past as a criminal analyst, she is no stranger to the court systems of Missouri, where she served almost 2 years in the criminal division of the 23rd Judicial, Jefferson County Circuit Clerks Office. There she worked with court system programs and understanding the dynamics of Missouri state statutes, local ordinances and government reliance among the public. Kyerra has a strong sense of community empowerment as she stands as a member of the United Nations Associations: Saint Louis Chapter and On the Board for Citizens for Global Solutions: Saint Louis Chapter.
If Kyerra is not in the community, searching and finding ways to push for development; she is working her brain away at web mastering and graphics for computer design. It is safe to say that she is a “Jack of All Trades”
