She has had the opportunity to lecture before other members of the State Bar of Georgia and nationally on issues related to family law, custody, social media discovery and admissibility, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements and financial settlements. In addition to representing parties to a family law dispute, Sheri is frequently appointed to represent the best interests of children involved in such disputes as a Guardian ad litem.

    Sheri received her J.D. from Georgia State University in 1997, and a B.A. in History in 1990.  Prior to beginning her career in the law, Sheri worked in sports marketing and management.  She has been licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia since 1997 and in the state of California since 2005.
