Cheryl graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a bachelor’s degree in Nursing after realizing she possessed a strong aptitude for it.

Cheryl and her husband Dean live in Amite with their two children – Dawson, 13, and Danica, 12.

“Cheryl’s in-depth understanding of compliance, operational efficiency and the value of exceptional care helps us to improve patient lives every time and with every touch," affirms Kirsten Riney, Vice President of Patient Services.
