Description of Practice

Sherry completed civil and advanced mediation training through Hamline University’s Dispute Resolution Institute in 1997, and certified family law mediation training in 1998. She earned her law degree from William Mitchell College of Law in 1999, and maintains a license to practice law in the State of Minnesota and U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. She practiced civil and family law for twenty years, seeing first-hand the time, money, and emotional energy exhausted in litigation. Sherry approaches mediation with curiosity and compassion, recognizing the importance of understanding individual needs. Besides facilitating constructive conversations between folks in conflict, Sherry finds great joy in teaching people the tools to engage in important conversations on their own through conflict resolution skills training and free online peace building class she offers each month. A qualified neutral on the Minnesota Supreme Court's Rule 114 roster, Sherry also serves as adjunct faculty at Mitchell Hamline School of Law teaching the Civil Dispute Resolution course.

She actively shares her time with a number of community organizations. Sherry lives in Alexandria, Minnesota. You will find her biking, hiking, reading, traveling, or enjoying the beautiful outdoors in her spare time.
