Sheri’s mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were janitors; hard working Detroit women who raised their beloved child with an incredible work ethic.
“They cleaned other people’s toliet’s everyday,” says Sheri. “They never asked anyone for anything, they never made excuses; I learned a lot by watching them be strong.”
Sheri was one the first to earn a college degree and later an MBA. From there she explored her passion for writing as a TV Producer in Saginaw and Detroit.
It was when she met her husband, Mannard, at ten-years old that her world tilted. They dated when she was 18, married when she was 24; and when he died when Sheri was 45, the earth shattered.
“I didn’t realize how much I had leaned on my husband. When he died, his strength wasn’t my strength anymore. I had to find my own.”
And she did. She did it by resurrecting her long ago passion…writing. The articles and her book about loss, recovery, adventure and endurance has resonated with individuals who are looking for a way to rebound in their own lives; and with corporations that value wellness and a well-tuned workforce.

If only I had learned all of this earlier, I kept saying to myself; not wasted so much time. The goal is not to languish a day longer, but to move as far towards the stars while there is time.
