For as long as Cheri can remember she has been in awe of how the spoken word from an effective orator can change one’s life.  As a young girl her friends wondered why Cherí would rather listen to a sermon on tape or talk radio rather than popular music.  She, on the other hand, couldn’t believe they weren’t interested in what the speakers had to say.  Forget about playing dress up or barbies, she soon found herself pretending she was the keynote speaker for large audiences. 

Cherí travels throughout the country speaking on a wide variety of topics.  Her speaking style has been described as relevant, compassionate, inviting, inspiring and humorous.
