Sherry is also founder of WIBusiness, a business and marketing support group for women entrepreneurs and works from home on the family farm where she keeps active enjoying her 6 horses, goats and other farm animals.

Sherry was diagnosed with Lipedema in 2013 and is in the early stages of Stage 3.

She suffered for over 10 years before a diagnosis was made and is hoping that by spreading awareness across Canada that other women will not have to suffer as long as she did.
