“While working at SAIC as Curriculum Manager, I managed a staff of 18 instructional designers/developers. Sherry was among them and stood out for a number of highly positive reasons, which include her instructional development capability, technical writing skill, ability to quickly absorb new and complex subject matter, responsiveness to “last-minute” requests, initiative to improve existing work procedures, adaptability to ever-changing needs/priorities, eagerness to learn, and consistently good humor — all in a remarkably fast-paced, demanding work environment. In sum, given her capabilities, positive attitude, and professional demeanor, I believe Sherry would quickly prove her value to almost any employer, regardless of industry-type.” March 16, 2011


Marcia Dickerson (Superior) – Instructional Systems Designer SAIC

“Sherry is an instructional systems designer’s dream writer. Her attention to detail, passion, and commitment to the project is inspiring. She takes it upon herself to learn as much as she can about the subject she is writing about to include taking classes herself in order to “understand” what the student needs in the classroom. It is a real pleasure to work with Sherry as she understands the mission, and she approaches it with a great sense of humor. Sherry is a great team member, and her commitment to excellence is without par.” March 8, 2010


Charles Platt (Peer) – WMD/Healthcare Instructor SAIC, Contractor to the Centers for Domestic Preparedness

“Sherry is a detail-oriented individual capable of capturing the finest minutia in a developing product, analyzing it, and negotiating it with groups of multidisciplinary subject-matter-experts. Her diplomatic approach to problem solving in this arena continues to be a treasured asset and a necessity to accurate and comprehensive curriculum product development. She is a consumate and uncompromising professional in all aspects of her job performance. I look forward to any opportunity to work with Sherry in her current position or any future position she might hold.” March 17, 2011


EJ LeBlanc (Peer) – Instructional Designer and Developer / Curriculum Developer SAIC

“The first time I met Sherry she was happily engrossed in her work, her fingers flying across a keyboard as she crafted Subject Matter Expert (SME) notes into the Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents course (known as HERT). I interrupted her to ask her a question, and, when she had answered it, I couldn’t resist finding out what she was working on, as she seemed to be enjoying it so much. Her face lit up as she began to describe to me the processes detailed in the course. At first I thought it must be the subject matter she was enjoying, but I now know that Sherry “lights up” while working on every course she approaches: she loves learning. This translates directly into a love for developing instruction, a love for teaching, a love for training — a love for helping people to be their best. In fact, her curiosity, passion, and intelligence are rivaled only by her dependability and professionalism. Sherry has always been there when I needed her, and I am the better for it. I give Sherry my highest recommendation because I know any organization will be the better for accessing her sagacity and energy.” March 28, 2011
