The author has engaged in a number of occupations over the years. She worked at a Dairy Queen, gift wrapped in a department store, trained horses, spliced telephone cable, cashiered at a grocery store, and clerked in a business office. Sherrie taught high school for 7 years, directed dinner theatre, and supervised a performing arts program. Later she sold insurance and trained agents. While working for the insurance company, she decided to go to law school.
After 10 years of litigating divorces, Sherrie "had all of the fun she could stand," and gave up the courthouse to concentrate on real estate transactions, mediation, collaborative family law, and promoting the collaborative process in other areas of civil disputes. Most people do not know that there is an option regarding the way disputes are settled, so Sherrie added "author" and "trainer" to her list of career choices. She chairs a study group for professionals at the Dallas Bar Association and conducts seminars for attorneys, judges, and other professionals who participate in the collaborative process.
Sherrie's passion is her family and friends. She has three children, 17 grandchildren and great grandchildren, and many wonderful friends all over the world. Sherrie loves photography and travel, and has never visited a place she did not enjoy. She has visited seven continents and goes whenever and wherever she finds the opportunity.
