She also serves on the South Carolina Nurses Association Continuing Education Approver Committee. Cheryl received her BSN degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and holds a neonatal intensive care nursing certification.

Cheryl’s passion for excellence in nursing and education is evident in all of her work. She is enthusiastic and strives for innovation and the best possible delivery of education programs to healthcare providers, both in the Pee Dee region and beyond.
