July HOPE Hero
Cheryl - HOPE Board Member
About our HOPE Hero:
Cheryl is a Florida native and grew up in Brandon before making her way to Bradenton in 1981. Cheryl loves her job, but when she isn’t working as a Realtor with Michael Saunders & Company, she is volunteering as a Board Member for HOPE Family Services. She says hearing success stories from survivors always keeps her motivated to volunteer.
What have you learned while volunteering?
I've learned there is a tremendous need for HOPE to help victims of domestic violence. HOPE helps in so many ways such as: preparing safety plans, providing counseling, shelter, legal assistance and more.
Describe the most incredible view you’ve ever seen.
I've been lucky enough to travel to some pretty exotic locations. I can't pick one, so here are my top 3: the most amazing shades of blue waters in Tahiti, waterfalls in Hawaii, Cadillac Mountain/Acadia National Park in Maine.
What advice would you give to a future volunteer?
Find what moves you and help in any way you can; share HOPE's message when you have the opportunity. I have a friend and board member, Mindy Hill, to thank for introducing me to HOPE.
Tell us about your most memorable accomplishment with this organization.
I am very proud to represent HOPE within our Michael Saunders MSC Foundation and pleased to contribute through the foundation to help support the vital work HOPE does to save lives. It makes me so happy to help contribute to HOPE!
