Name: Keri Berardinelli
Hometown: Euclid, OH
Reside in: Rancho El Dorado, Maricopa
Maricopan since: July/2019
Occupation: I’m the co-owner of Lotus Evolutions, LLC, a holistic spa-wellness concept.
Family: I live with my life partner, Chad Binder, and I’m the proud mom of three grown boys and one beautiful granddaughter.
Pets: We have three cats – Coco B, Kit Kat, and Ebby.
Cars: I’m not a car person. I’m happy to have a safe, decent car to drive, nothing fancy.
Hobbies: I love to dine and have deep conversations on the patio with a glass of wine; I love to dance, practice yoga, go for a hike, swim and have quality time with my family and friends. I also love documentaries…and podcasts.
Pet peeve: Too much access and variety to “fast-foods”.
Dream vacation: My dream vacation would be to Tuscany, Italy, or more recently I think it would be amazing to visit the Peruvian Mountains like Machu Picchu.
Like most about Maricopa: I love the small-town feel of Maricopa. My neighborhood is quiet, comfortable and peaceful, which I don’t take for granted. I also love to be witness to the growth of a small town. The people here are very entrepreneurial, ambitious and have drive to contribute their gifts here.
Like least about Maricopa: What I like least is what most people like least and that is driving into town on the infamous SR 347. I also would love to see more opportunities and support to local, independent businesses that create the eclectic vibe that I love.
