Rev. Sherry (as she is affectionately known) is an inspirational speaker, spiritual counselor/coach, forgiveness coach, healer, teacher, and workshop facilitator. She has been a minister for more than 20 years, with almost 40 years' experience in the Religious Science/New Thought arena. She began her Religious Science and other New Thought studies in Cleveland, Ohio in the early 1970s, and later became a licensed Religious Science Practitioner at the Agape Center, under the tutelage of Michael Bernard Beckwith, in the early 1990s. She is a Religious Science minister (Emerson Institute), and she is also ordained in both the Interfaith (One Spirit Interfaith Seminary) and Spiritualist (Fellowships of the Spirit) traditions.


Rev. Sherry currently serves on the faculty at Creative Living University. She has had a long association with Inner Light Ministries in Soquel, CA, and also with several Centers for Spiritual Living and Unity churches in Arizona, California, Ohio, and Michigan, where she serves as a frequent guest speaker, teacher, workshop facilitator, consultant, and counselor.

Heart-centered, intuitive, grounded, and practical, Rev. Sherry has also been an attorney for more than 35 years (licensed in Ohio and California). As such, she has developed keen insights and invaluable skills that allow her to successfully utilize the unique combination of her legal training and spiritual consciousness to help people transform their lives as they learn to come home to themselves and live to their fullest potential.
