They have two sons Brandon, a 2013 Peddie graduate who is pursuing a business and finance degree at TCNJ and Hunter, who will graduate Allentown High School in 2015 and pursue a degree in engineering at the University of Delaware. Geri considers working with children and their families the most rewarding job and takes great pleasure in her students' successes and the “I did it!’ moments.

She possesses a Child Development Associate credential (CDA), as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from TCNJ, which makes hands on science her favorite part of the day.

They have one son, Matt, who recently graduated from Rider University with a degree in Communications and works for CBS Radio in Philadelphia.
