Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Cherry is definitely a Florida girl as displayed by her love of the out of doors. Most weekends you will find Peter and Cherry on the river at lake Hartwell or in the north Georgia mountains with their Labrador retriever Preston and labradoodle Wallace. Past activities included a love of water skiing and snow skiing, but currently, salt or fresh water fishing and snorkeling in the ocean are still enjoyed whenever possible. Other hobbies include cooking, eating great seafood, reading and of course big lovable dogs!
Professionally, Cherry received a certificate in Dental Assisting at Palm Beach Jr. College and worked as a chair side assistant for a dentist in West Palm for a little over five years before returning to school at Armstrong State College to get a science degree in Dental Hygiene. She is licensed in Florida and Georgia and practiced about 16 years before returning to school to study pharmacy at the University of Georgia. She received her pharmacy degree and license in 1994, but currently manages Japanese Motor Works together with her husband Peter and dogs. She is most grateful for being able to help the family business at JMW without having to put in a 13-hour workday to do so. Also, she enjoys working with the best group people ever at JMW, as they bring so much to the table both professionally and personally.
