Her own spiritual search began at thirteen when she taught herself meditation and self-hypnosis. She dedicated her life to God, determined to understand more about herself and her purpose in life. Although she didn’t comprehend the extent of her commitment, she recognized that she was beginning a transformational journey. She has continued her spiritual path to inner awareness and healing through daily practice.
Always naturally curious, Sheryl has grown and evolved through a variety of disciplines. Sheryl has written journals since she was twelve. She continues to use them as a means to express and work through emotions, create and use positive affirmations and to invoke the power of the subconscious to realize greater spiritual truth. She accesses the inner wisdom of SpiritWoman, and follows this guidance to achieve greater self-understanding. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge to help others find their path to health, joy, peace and spiritual connection and through writing, art, teaching, speaking and energy healing.
A perennial student, Sheryl enjoys reading, and studying metaphysics, genealogy and herbal lore.

She is also an abstract artist, and derives her inspiration from the natural world.
