CHERYL grew up in the D.C. area and has seen Washington change a great deal over the years. Having traveled nationally for her work and internationally for fun, she still thinks D.C. is one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Cheryl had a career as a K-12 educator both as a classroom teacher and at national leadership organizations. Her favorite book about Washington, D.C. is Chocolate City: A History of Race and Democracy in the Nation’s Capital by Chris Myers Asch and George Derek Musgrove that chronicles the changing demographics of D.C. before and during the great migration and the communities created and destroyed over the life of the city. Her work at Washington Walks helps her not only share the city she loves, but also to continue her own education journey.
