actor | singer | music teacher
Canadian born, Jamaican bred actress, choir director, former professional opera singer, on-and-off-again-yogi, 6-day-a-week weightlifter who nerds out big time when teaching music to her students!
Since earning her Masters in Music Education from the University of Central Florida, Sheryl taught music, and sang professionally with the Orlando Opera Company.
At 13-ish, she performed two seasons as orphan July in 'Annie', at the Windsor Light Opera in her hometown, Windsor Ontario. The experience gave her the itch to act, but she didn't follow up with it until later, when the Orlando Opera closed its doors, forcing her to find another acting outlet.
Sheryl did it, and is enjoying every moment on stage as Calpurnia in 'To Kill a Mockingbird', Cleopatra in 'Antony and Cleopatra' opposite Star Trek's Michael Dorn (AKA Klingon Worf), Ruth Younger in 'A Raisin in the Sun', and Rose Maxson in 'Fences' at Regional professional theatres, Orlando Shakespeare, American Stage and Mad Cow theatres respectively.
Her films include 'LeBlanc' with Samaire Armstrong, Corin Nemec and Alexandria DeBerry, 'Riviera' opposite Robert LaSardo. Sheryl's commercials include national spots Zaxby's, KitchenAid, and regional spots for Mercury Insurance and more.
Sheryl's hosting credits include 'Mom's Homeroom', (series regular 17 episodes) streamed on MSN.com involving all her loves: music, fitness and education.
In between acting gigs and gym sessions, Sheryl is a musicprenuer, creating, owning, operating and teaching voice and piano at CREATIVEOLOGY MUSIC & FILM, her very own voice and piano studio!
