Kerri Meyer


Solving problems through people, process and discovery is what energizes Kerri. Creating experiential learning experiences and using her advanced facilitation to strengthen individuals and teams is a passion. Kerri applies her business and operation skills to the learning environment to ensure a return on people investment.

In her free time, Kerri enjoys traveling, boating and fishing, exploring the areas around her hometown of Reno, NV, spending time with her family, and volunteering.

Lindsay Bradley


Lindsay is the Program Manager for our client interactions as well as a coach, trainer and facilitator. At StartHuman, we count on her to keep us organized and efficient in our internal processes. She also helps to educate and bring awareness about StartHuman’s offerings through marketing, social media and community engagement.

Lindsay has been passionate about the business world since the age of ten. Her natural curiosity has allowed her to experience roles within a variety of industries and throughout these adventures she realized her enthusiasm for business went far beyond optimizing processes on the operational side. By operating through a conscious lens, she has acknowledged the need for better leadership at the top and has been a catalyst for driving cultural change designed to elevate businesses and their humans.

Outside of StartHuman, Lindsay can be found “glamping” across Nevada’s beautiful terrain, catching as many sunsets as possible and hanging out with her rescue fur baby, Penny. She also loves to go wine tasting and is a baseball fanatic-Go Cubs!
