How did you get started with Uber?
"I began driving for Uber in January of 2015. My sister urged me to give it a try because of the great things she heard about the company. I did, and almost a year later, I am so glad I took her advice."
"Being a small business owner, it’s so important to network and Uber offers that possibility. I meet such a mix of people on a day-to-day basis, it’s really a charm."

Starting and running your own event management company is no small feat, so Keri started driving with Uber to help make additional income on her own schedule.
"I love the flexibility that Uber offers, which is so important in my field of work," she says. "At any given moment, I have to be available to meet with clients, vendors, or partners."
