Sherry was born and grew up in Surrey, England. Her father was English and her mother Canadian. Her Canadian family owned vacation cottages near the Sandbanks beaches. It was probably inevitable that the family would immigrate to the idyllic lifestyle of Prince Edward County.
Sherry is a multi-talented woman, having been a jewelry-maker, knife-maker, carpenter, painter and decorator. Currently she is a building-specialist for Home Hardware Building Centre in Picton. She specializes in Lumber, Windows, Doors, Roofing, Siding and Decking.
