Her life made a dramatic change in college when she took a required course in health education and got hooked. She knew immediately her calling in life was to guide adults and children to healthier, happier lives.
This passion led her to complete her Masters in Public Health (M.P.H.) at Loma Linda University. While there, she also received her credentials as a registered dietitian (R.D.).
Her career path soon brought her to Florida Hospital, where she has spent the past fifteen years helping Central Florida--and its children--become healthier. During her tenure at Florida Hospital, Sherri has presented hundreds of seminars, participated in numerous health fairs, and has worked with countless children, families and individuals to achieve optimum health. For the past three years, she served as head of Florida Hospital's Center for Nutritional Excellence.
Since arriving at Florida Hospital, Sherri has seen a dramatic increase in the number of children referred to her for obesity and other related medical problems. After seeing first-hand the massive issues children struggle with, Sherri became actively involved with Florida Children's Hospital and is part of the team developing a pediatric obesity program. Sherri is also on the Childhood Obesity Taskforce in Central Florida. Whether being interviewed by the media on the problem of childhood obesity or talking with reporters about children's school lunch issues, Sherri is passionate in her belief that change is possible.
