Sheri holds three master’s degrees—in Modern Letters, Religions and the Arts, and Library Science—each related to forms of communication. She served for ten years as Editor-in-Chief at the award-winning and profitable Conscious Choice Journal of Ecology and Natural Living, then gained certification by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute, then began creating and officiating at weddings, memorials, and other ceremonies. Sheri has authored more than 22 publications available through WorldCat, and her stories and poems have been published in journals throughout the United States and in England. Her collection of political poems, entitled Stubborn, was published as a Locofo Chap by Moria Press. A charismatic and experienced performer, Sheri is a longstanding member of the Neo-Futurists and a former member of the TranceSisters multidisciplinary arts collective. She is a member of the Advocate Healthcare Narrative Medicine Committee and is co-facilitator, with Anita Vaughn, of the Illinois Chapter of CF&I.
