Dr. Kerr attended Yale University for her undergraduate education and there became interested in the complexities of the nervous system. She majored in neurolinguistics before going on to obtain her PhD in physiology at the University of Virginia. She moved to Utah to do a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr Doju Yoshikami in the Department of Biology. During that time she became increasingly interested in clinical aspects of central nervous system function and so chose to go on to medical school at the University of Utah. She did her pediatric internship and residency and then her neurology residency at the University of Utah. Between starting medical school and finishing her neurology residency, Dr Kerr had four children. Dr Kerr is particularly interested in working with children with chronic conditions and their families. As part of this focus, she has worked on the Medical Home Portal, a website for primary care providers and families of children with special health care needs. Also reflecting this interest, Dr Kerr has served on numerous community boards and is currently a Clinical Advisory Board member of the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation and on the Community Board for the Salt Lake Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Dr Kerr volunteered for a Youthlinc trip to Yanamono, Peru in 2006 where she helped supervise college and nursing students in a small village on the Amazon. In addition to helping the students with their presentations to the villagers regarding public and personal health topics, she was also able to see patients in a unique setting along the river. A highlight of the trip was being led in a traditional goodbye dance by the local shaman who was simultaneously singing, chain smoking, and dancing, all with equal enthusiasm!
Research and clinical interests include quality improvement and headache evaluation and treatment. Dr Kerr is the neurologist for the Spina Bifida Clinic and is part of the pediatric neurology Headache Clinic. She also sees patients at Shriners Hospital in Salt Lake City.
Dr Kerr’s hobbies include hiking these incredible mountains, playing piano, and traveling anywhere in the world.
