Cheryl Hunter

Imagination, creativity and attention to detail are my tools, quality and integrity are my guides, satisfaction of a finished product is my goal.

A native Californian, I have a feel for the pulse of this great state. That being said, I am also fascinated with the social-cultural nuances of other places. I enjoy learning about how other people live their lives, how they see the world and what brings them joy.

I am the mother of four adult children, three daughters and a son. My son is the youngest, diagnosed at two years old with severe Autism, he has had an amazing impact on our family. I have three grandchildren who are a new delight in my life.

I spent over thirty years teaching gymnastics, dance and fitness to children and teens, half of those years owning a training facility. During that time I gained experience in everything from Kinesiology and Sports Pedagogy to business management, marketing and advertising. I was even exposed to a bit of planning and design when laying out our 10,000 square foot facility to accommodate all of the equipment and observation area for the gym.

Beyond the recreation field, I have worked in office administration, vocational training and supported employment, end user documentation, mental health stigma reduction, public speaking and presentation, website design, art and theater, music and songwriting, sensory integration for children with Autism, newspaper advertising, and blog writing. I have written two books that are available through Amazon. My family is musically inclined, I play acoustic guitar and electric bass, my husband is a professional drummer and my youngest daughter is a singer songwriter with published original EPs in the market.

Thank you for considering my service.
