Perri attended Archbishop Ryan High School until 2004. After school she went on tour as an assistant with her brother's band until she received a scholarship to the renowned University of the Arts (Philadelphia). After a year she stopped studying and spent some time in Italy to get to know her father's ancestral home. Perri moved to Los Angeles on her 21st birthday and married in the same year.
