Capri was born and raised in Rhode Island and has spent the last two decades living in Warwick. She left the Automotive Technology program at NEIT to work in RI political scene. Capri was the campaign manager for State Senator Jeanine Calkin’s initial 2016 campaign and then her 2018 re-election campaign. In between, Capri recruited and trained candidates to run for office, was an advocate against the PawSox stadium deal, and was a field organizer for the Earned Sick Days campaign which guaranteed paid sick leave for most Rhode Islanders.
While still active in RI politics, Capri enrolled at URI where she graduated Summa Cum Laude as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. While at URI she interned as an assistant teacher at Oakland Beach Elementary School and organized the “Books for Kids” campaign that provided young readers with material for the summer months. Following graduation, Capri became certified in Education of Young Children and Early Childhood Education.
