Cheryl doesn't remember a time when she wasn't interested in reading and writing. As a young child, she dictated stories to her grandparents before learning to write, and later created a "family newspaper", appointing herself both reporter and editor-in-chief. In high school, Cheryl participated in the school newspaper and literary magazine. It was in college that she discovered a love of research and academic writing.
Cheryl began freelance writing as a way of filling in the gaps in her income during a period of unemployment. She was asked to handle some overflow work by a friend that owned a small freelance writing service, and discovered that she enjoyed the work. She began by writing blog posts in the areas of travel, family and parenting, and real estate. Soon, she began branching out and writing for other companies, and the part time, temporary freelancing gig evolved into a full time job. Cheryl is skilled in writing about education and health topics in addition to travel, parenting, and real estate.
