The best part of my job is that I get the pleasure of meeting so many different people and hopefully have a positive impact on their lives. I love that my job is never the same on any given day and that what I do returns people back to what they love to do.

The best thing about CPR is the staff! You cannot help but feel it in the atmosphere that from the moment you walk in the door to the time you leave everybody there is there to serve you and genuinely cares for you.

CHeryl 2My greatest professional accomplishment is, again, on a daily basis that I get to improve someone's quality of life. The fact that every patient that walks through the door has a choice of care and they choose me to assist them with their goals is a very humbling and rewarding gift that I get to have on a daily basis.

A good weekend includes anything that allows me to spend time with family, a great bike ride, sleeping in, and any Spartan win...go green!

Something that might surprise you about me is that I have a former life as a golf course superintendent and a degree in golf course management.
