She is an accomplished musician who has mastered playing several musical instruments and has toured Europe, Canada, and the United States. She now resides in Las Vegas and performs her music at many of the casinos and musical venues and teaches guitar, bass guitar, vocals and piano to students of all ages.
Cheryl’s love for animals started at an early age growing up on a farm in Ohio where one of the family pets was an owl that Cheryl adored. That love of animals led to her breeding Siberian Huskies when she was living in California. After relocating to Las Vegas Cheryl rescued a young Pembroke Welsh Corgi from the animal shelter. Cricket was a very sick boy with a severe case of heartworms. Over the 10 years that Cheryl had Cricket she dealt with numerous health problems including Cushing’s Disease, bladder stones and multiple spinal disk injuries. Cheryl knows all too well how quickly these kinds of problems can come up, and how expensive they can be to deal with.
Because of the support Cheryl received while dealing with Cricket’s health challenges she has wanted to pay it forward. For the last couple of years Cheryl as been assisted individuals needing help with private fundraiser and promoting the Supporting Corgis auctions. More recently she has worked with the Queen’s Best Stumpy Dog Rescue in California and assisting Bandit’s Bandaid with fundraising. And she is now the proud owner of another Corgi named Aubrey. Cheryl joins FaithBark’s Board with the idea of growing the organization’s resources so that it will be the first place that people go when they need help with a dog rescue or a serious health issue.
