Cherrie grew up in Wallaceburg, where she lives now, with her husband, Kim.  She has 2 sons, both married, 6 grandchildren, with one on the way.  When Cherrie's children were younger, she decided to be a stay-at-home mom. When they were both in school, she joined the workforce.

 

In 2006, Cherrie decided to go back to school and enrolled in the Social Service Workers program at Lambton College, graduating in June 2008.  A Clinical Trauma Specialist, Cherrie also belongs to the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.
