As a young child, Sherry adored the company of animals and only became more interested in their health and care as she got older. It wasn’t long before she realized that helping pets involves helping their owners as well—Sherry knew that a career in the world of veterinary medicine was the perfect choice for her! Sherry is originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where her family has owned a local business since the 1800s. She moved to northern Virginia after college, where she was referred to a local veterinarian for employment. The day she started, Sherry knew that she’d made the right choice! She’s been working in veterinary medicine ever since.
Sherry joined the Ridge Lake Animal Hospital family in January of 2016 and serves as the clinic’s Practice Manager. Some of her favorite parts of the workday are getting to hear clients’ fun pet stories and being a first-hand witness to the incredible bonds between animals and their owners. Above all, Sherry likes knowing that she’s made a true difference for the families of the area. Outside of work, Sherry enjoys volunteering her time to animal rescue efforts, going for walks with her family, and riding dressage. She has two horses: Jalapeno Poppers, who is retired and now lives comfortably at home with Sherry and her family; and Sherry’s dressage horse, Semper Fi. The family also owns a rescued collie named Mollie and four rescued cats named Phoebe, Raphael, Lucie, and Linus.
