Post FBI retirement, Jerri was the Director of Media Relations for SEPTA, the sixth largest public transportation agency in the country. In this role, she often addressed the media and the public on camera about newsworthy events. On any given day, she was tasked with explaining the complexities of the Authority’s budget, the odd behavior of a rider whose actions were captured on surveillance cameras and required police response, or emceeing a celebration marking the completion of a major transit improvement project.

Currently, Jerri is an author and podcaster. She calls on her professional encounters with scams and schemers to write police procedurals inspired by true crime FBI cases in her Philadelphia FBI Corruption Squad crime fiction series featuring flawed female FBI agent Kari Wheeler. Recently, Jerri’s also been working as a technical consultant for major TV networks with shows in production. Her FBI for Armchair Detectives nonfiction series enables readers to discover who the FBI is and what the FBI does by debunking misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies. Jerri’s books are available as ebooks, paperbacks, and audiobooks wherever books are sold. She’s also the host of FBI Retired Case File Review, a true crime podcast with more than 200 episodes and nearly 4 million downloads available for free subscription on all popular podcast apps.
