Sheryl grew up in West Bloomfield, Michigan and was raised by a military father who instilled the importance of patience and integrity - two traits that she exemplifies in each real estate transaction. Earlier in life, Sheryl worked as a medical technologist at Michigan State University and the University of Utah Medical Center, and as a ward clerk in a Minnesota emergency room. In these careers, she worked alongside other healthcare professionals to help manage sick patients.
Sheryl became attracted to real estate as another means to helping others. She enjoys giving back to the community and focuses on those who have served their fellow people, such as military personnel similar to her father, or healthcare professionals similar to those she worked alongside for so many years. Navy Federal Credit Union, Sheryl has helped military clients find homes using VA Loans. This is her way of giving back to those who serve and protect our country.
After having moved from state to state for several years, she settled in the suburbs of Chicago in 1990. She raised her three children here and is therefore very familiar with the housing market and the nearby schools and attractions. She looks forward to sharing her knowledge and passion for the area to help her clients find the ideal location to call home. Her favorite part of each transaction is when she shakes the hand of her clients and knows she has served them well.
