She is currently a member of Phi Kappa Phi and is an advocate for STEM Education.
Prior to joining Fusion, Cheryl has experience working in the pharmaceutical industry as a Research Chemist and as a small business owner. She became interested in education as she recognized failures of the traditional classroom setting with regard to her own children’s schooling. With over ten years of teaching experience, she has taught students, ranging from Kindergarten through college level, and strives to take the “scary” out of math and science concepts. She enjoys developing a love for learning with a goal of personal greatness in her students.
Cheryl relocated from Phoenix, Arizona to the Plano area in 2015. She considers her life blessed and sweetened by her husband, of twenty years, and their two teenage children. When she is not attending any of her family’s many events, Cheryl can be found playing video games, developing her skills in the textile arts, or contemplating the plot of her first novel.
Wacky Fact: When Cheryl was a teenager, she earned her black belt in Tae Kwon Do and was a member of the USA Junior Olympic Team.
