Kerri Hanson

Position: Staff
Email: khanson@lmrpa.com
Categories: Professional Staff
Location: Dover

Kerri Hanson joined the Leone, McDonnell & Roberts team in 2022 as a Staff Accountant. She graduated from Saint Anselm College (BA) in 2020 and Merrimack College (MSA- concentration in Taxation and Forensics) in 2022. While many people come to the accounting field in college, Kerri has known what she wanted to do when she grew up since she was a kid. In the 6th grade, her class took a field trip to Exchange City, where she spent the day as an accountant and knew working in accounting was her dream. So, essentially, working at LMPRA isn’t just a job for Kerri — it’s a dream come true!

In her role as Staff Accountant, Kerri gets to do what she loves — problem-solving for clients and serving in a field known for integrity and ethics. She approaches client projects like a real-time puzzle where she finds creative ways for clients to resolve their problems and achieve the best results for their needs.

Before joining Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, Kerri worked as a Senior Accountant at a local bank in NH for two years. In her downtime, she volunteers at For Goodness Cakes, an organization that matches volunteers to make and hand-deliver birthday and graduation cakes to children in foster care and youth overcoming adversity on their special day. Kerri loves to travel in her free time, visiting 22 countries total in her life, and eight European countries this past summer alone. In the future, she hopes to see all seven world wonders and skydive in a different country.
