HelloInterview: Meet Kerri-lynn Wilkinson – Yoga Instructor, Graphic Designer, and Pinterest Influencer!
Meet HelloSociety influencer Kerri-lynn Wilkinson from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada! She’s the new manager of Moksha Yoga Tuxedo studio and just ended her 13-year career as a graphic designer. Kerri-lynn grew up in High Bluff, Manitoba, a tiny town just outside of Portage La Prairie, and she and her family moved to High Bluff where she attended high school. After high school she moved to Winnipeg to attend university where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in graphic design. After graduating she worked at a design studio called Neuhaus which is now called Honest Agency where she returned to work 4 years later.
Kerri-lynn joined the Army Reserves after, where she ended up working for 10 years. “I guess you could say I like to be busy, one job has never been enough.” She met her husband in 2004 when they both did their Basic Military Qualification (BMQ) course together. “By the end of that year, New Year’s Eve to be exact, we were dating. We had a whirlwind romance of 9 years before we finally made it official last September.” They live together in Winnipeg with their two Boxer cross dogs, Gigi and Hugo.
When Kerri-lynn’s not working or on Pinterest she can be found doing yoga or hanging out with friends and family. She and her husband Sean also love checking out local restaurants. Kerri-lynn’s passion for design, fashion, home decor, yoga, patterns, and art has earned her over 516k Pinterest followers!
When did you start using Pinterest and what inspired you to make an account?
I don’t really remember when I started using Pinterest, it was pretty early on in 2010 or 2011 because it was still at the time when you needed to submit a request for an invitation. I think at that time it was mostly creatives — designers, architects, etc — that were using it and that’s why I initially signed up for an account. I used it to look for inspiration for design projects, it was way easier than keeping folders of images on my computer or keeping shelves of design magazines in the studio. (more…)
