Sheri’s passion for genealogy shows up in her DNA ancestry results—along with her pilgrim and pioneer heritage. Working with her grandmother at a young age, she helped her grandmother complete their family’s four-generation pedigree chart. This experience of bringing the names to life with each personal history and story left a lasting impact on Sheri and her approach to genealogy. It was this same grandmother who guided Sheri to change her major to Family History when she went back to college after raising five children.
Sheri has been a professional genealogist for over 12 years. She believes that every person has a story and loves to discover the details of their ancestors’ lives. She enjoys compiling books for clients with their family story and legacy. She has enjoyed the variety of projects she has worked on as a researcher. Now as a project manager, Sheri is as happy as her clients as the findings unfold.
She earned a degree in Family History from Brigham Young University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. While pursuing her degree, she completed an extensive internship at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, which houses the largest collection of Family History records in the world.
Since graduation, Sheri has provided personal genealogical consulting for individuals, families, and groups. She created and directed a Family History lab at the Mexico Missionary Training center for two years, helping thousands from all over the world gain the skills to tell their family history stories.
Her love for Latin culture and the Spanish language came when she lived in Chile for three years and Mexico for two years. As a result of this experience, she is fluent in Spanish and proficient in Creole.
Sheri brings with her over 30 years of customer relations experience, which is perfect for her role as a Project Manager with Legacy Tree. She loves interacting with our clients and ensuring they have an excellent experience as they discover more about their heritage and the people in their family tree.
