Sherry, co-director of the River City Dance Festival, is also a certified UCWDC® judge – one of the first to become certified from Canada. She was the first woman elected to serve as UCWDC® President; she served two terms (from 1999 through 2002). Sherry was the President when the World Championships event first ventured outside the United States – to Edmonton, Canada in 2001, and then in the following year to the Netherlands. In those years of rapid growth in competitive country dancing in Europe and North America, she kept the UCWDC®on track despite huge financial challenges and unpredictable growing pains.
