Most recently, Sherry was Assistant Counsel at a regional Medicaid and Medicare Managed Care Organization that focused on improving the health outcomes of low income individuals and improving access to the healthcare system. Additionally, she serves on the board, and has held leadership positions, in several community and women’s organizations.
