After graduating from University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a BS in Therapeutic Recreation, Cheryl’s career began as the Pediatric Recreational Therapist at Mary Free Bed. After six-years with MFB she shifted her focus to being a devoted full-time mom, and loved every minute of it.
Cheryl has always been passionate about volunteering, especially when it involves children. She began volunteering with the Center from the day the doors opened, an experience that she quickly felt privileged to be a part of. Cheryl cherishes the connections she has made with member children and families and looks forward to being a part of the CHC team.
Cheryl and her husband, Dave, have 4 children- one daughter and three sons, who are all grown and making lives of their own. In her free time, Cheryl enjoys exercising, various outdoor activities both in and out of the water, cooking, and travel.
