After graduating from the Ohio State University College of Nursing with her BSN, she started her career in the CCU at Lakewood Hospital. At that time, she began working with the rescue squads on the West Side of Cleveland. Cheryl taught many of the paramedics on Cleveland’s West Side the skills needed in the pre-hospital setting. She has been involved with WESHARE for many years, providing EMS education to paramedics of nine West Side suburbs. During her years at Lakewood, Cheryl also had many different roles. After functioning in the CCU as the assistant clinical nurse manager, she worked as Critical Care Instructor, clinical nurse manager of Lakewood’s Emergency Department, Clinical Care Coordinator, staff nurse, and most recently, Trauma Program Manager at both Lakewood Hospital and Huron Hospital. During her tenure at Lakewood, she functioned as the hospital’s EMS coordinator. Cheryl also worked as a nurse recruiter and staff development instructor. She taught in both the Tri-C and LCCC Paramedic programs during the early years of those programs. In her spare time, she also was a Parish Nurse for Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Lakewood.
