Hi! I am Cheri. So you want to know a little about me? I would too. I am in my fifties. (A lady never tells her exact age) I have been in the teaching field for 24 years and added addiction counseling to my resume about 13 years ago. Later I became a speaker and facilitator for presentations and have been doing that for the last four years as well. I can't remember a time when I wasn't presenting information in some form or fashion. For example, in my twenties I was teaching hotel staff about earthquake and tsunami preparedness.
I have four children and five beautiful grandchildren. They bring so much joy to my life. As you can see above, I have been fighting cancer for the last four years. I don't see this as restricting at all. It has helped me to see where I need to be a better person and that each day is precious. In some ways, cancer was the best thing to happen to me. It doesn't limit me and it keeps me from procrastinating.
I also am a published author with three children's picture books and an adult series out. I am writing a book to cancer patients and their caregivers that will be out soon.
