Cherie was born and raised in Arizona.  She is a true desert dweller, in her glory in the midst of our scorching valley summers.  Her step-father and sister also reside in the valley. 

As a single woman, she is able to devote the majority of her time to church and people-related situations.  She feels her time can be spent most effectively in His service this way.  

Cherie has always worked in clerical and administrative positions, enjoying the challenges of different industries, from office equipment to automotive to vehicle modifications for the disabled.  For the past almost 15 years though, she has truly found her niche here as secretary at the Camelback Church.  Cherie wears many hats, as is well known, and her church family considers her the glue that holds things together here at Camelback.  This is where she feels at home and knows she is loved.
