by neeta bhushan


Quote: “We all were given a purpose. Before we came out of our mother, we had a purpose.”
– Dr. Kerrie Carter-Walker

As soon as the camera started rolling, Dr. Kerrie Carter-Walker commanded complete attention with her powerful story. From surviving childhood trauma and escaping an abusive relationship to finding her purpose as an educator, real estate investor, and transformational speaker, Dr. Kerrie’s story is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. Every guest on The Brave Table has a story of resilience, but this one is a beacon of hope for anyone seeking to press in, overcome adversity, step into their purpose, and live life with boldness.

In this episode we talk about…

  • Loss of identity after sexual molestation and the lasting impact of childhood trauma into adulthood.
  • Responding to chronic suicidal ideation and finding forgiveness to improve relationship with self.
  • The profound impact of motherhood on a woman’s life and sense of purpose. 


Dr. Kerrie Carter-Walker was born and raised in the small town of Cuero, Texas. Her childhood and life experiences taught her that no matter what obstacles you come across, your past does not dictate your future. She is a strong believer that God gives everyone gifts and talents and it is up to them to use them to fulfill a specific purpose in life. 

After being in education as a teacher and assistant principal for 10 years, Kerrie found a new passion in life. She became an accidental real estate investor, but quickly found out she had a newfound passion that would open up so many doors outside of education. As a motivational speaker, Kerrie helps children to find their way in life. As a coach,she helps women of all ages living FULL lives by fulfilling their purpose.
