Hi, I'm Kerry Youker!


I'm a certified life coach who loves to help people identify and articulate their passion(s). 

My Story


After graduating from Chico State with a degree in International Relations, I had a successful career in Silicon Valley for 15 years doing application training and consulting. My life path took an unexpected turn after the birth of my second child. My son was diagnosed with epilepsy, which led me to leave the corporate world. I started KerryU after helping several kids, including my own, navigate the college application process. As a mother of two boys with vastly different life paths, I learned firsthand how different kids have different needs. I've discovered my new passion in life and hope I can do the same for your child! 

At KerryU, we focus on helping students learn more about themselves. We focus on who they are today, and who they want to become. The college application process can be a scary time, but it doesn’t have to be. We use humor, knowledge and perspective to help support students through the process. 

At KerryU, we work with people making career transitions, whether it’s starting out, changing direction, returning to work, or retiring. All of these transitions need to be thought through and KerryU is here to help people clarify not only what they want but also understand how to take the actions to get to that future they desire. 

From C-Suite executives to struggling teens. Whether you’re trying to get into an Ivy League school or simply regain your life or career bearings, when you become a student at KerryU, you learn to do life in a better way than any textbook could teach.
