Affiliated with Missouri State University for more than 30 years, Sherry teaches in the Marketing Department. Little did she know, when starting a career in marketing, she would end up marketing and promoting science!
Involved in all aspects of community life, she was named one of the “Twenty Most Influential Women” by Springfield Business Journal and was nominated for a Missouri Women in Business Innovation award. Special educational interests include gifted education, differentiated learning, writing, and of course, science as it relates to our daily lives. She conducts programs and training workshops throughout the country to help make science come alive to educators so that they might instill that passion in their students.
In her free time, Sherry enjoys travelling, cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family: husband Dennis and grown children, Michael and Lauren. When they're not around, there's always a good book and a great cup of coffee to enjoy in solitude.
