Registered Nurses

Keri Ball, MSN, RN 
Registered Nurse, Keri.Ball@umb.edu 

Keri graduated from Suffolk University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism & Public Relations. She decided that she didn't want to work behind a desk for her entire career, so she went back to school and obtained her Diploma of Nursing from Brockton Hospital School of Nursing in 2020, her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Western Governors University in 2021, and her Master of Science in Nursing Education from Western Governors University in 2022. Before her time at UHS, she worked as a nurse in community health and home care, specializing in patients with dementia.

Keri's husband is a firefighter (who sometimes responds to 911 calls at UHS!) and they have a 3-year-old Australian Shepherd named Blue who bosses around their entire lives! They spend the majority of their time traveling. They are working on hiking all the 48 highest peaks in New Hampshire -- the "NH 4,000 footers," and they have a bucket list goal of visiting all the National Parks in the country -- they've visited 13 so far! When Keri's not working or traveling, she also enjoys reading, fitness, testing out new recipes, or spending time with her family.
