Sherri has appeared in television commercials for South Beach Diet Foods and ChapStick.
On September 23, 2007, Sherri took part in the 21st Annual Broadway Flea Market to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. She was one of several soap opera stars to sign autographs at the event.
Sherri says she does yoga to stay in such great shape. She also race walks and uses a treadmill a few times a week.
Sherri's mom, a journalist, raised her and her two siblings by herself. Sherri says that her mother is her biggest supporter and that she keeps every article her daughter's name appears in.
Sherri says she first became interested in show business after seeing the movie Annie when she was a young girl.
Sherri and a friend, Karen Osborn, started their own line of fun and affordable handbags called "Kozzies" in the summer of 2002.
Sherri appeared on the cover of Let's Live magazine in August of 1998. The magazine also featured an interview with Sherri where she talked about how she stays healthy.
Sherri's hobbies include reading, singing, and dancing. She especially enjoys novels by author Patricia Cornwell.
When she was 18 years old, Sherri was discovered while participating in a model search in Dayton, Ohio. She was awarded a modeling contract with an agency in New York as a result.
Sherri has been nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards. One in 1999 in the category of "Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series" for her work on Sunset Beach, and one in 2002 in the category of "America's Favorite Couple," along with her One Life to Live co-star, Kamar De Los Reyes.
In high school, Sherri was both a member of the drama club and the cheerleading squad.
Sherri: (on being nominated for a Daytime Emmy) It's a blessing and a curse at the same time.
Sherri: I've always been searching for balance in my life, and I've finally found it by listening to my body. Living simply, by eating whole foods, from nature, using the earth to nourish my body and exercising, are all so important for establishing a balance in life.
Sherri: My father lived near us, but it wasn't in his nature to have a relationship with me. So I always had crushes on my friends' fathers because I had this internal longing for that strong figure in my life.
Sherri: I love babies; just don't let them come from my womb and I am a happy camper.
Sherri: If I didn't act, being in the FBI would be the only other thing to thrill me. I've always been intrigued by the world of the criminal. I think it's an inborn thing with me, like the way I've always loved mystery and suspense. Maybe coming from Ohio, I had to create my drama. I'm very much a tomboy. I'd never want a job behind a desk, so being out in the field would be great. I love the unexpected.
Sherri: All I want to do is work as an actress. It's not about fame or money. I can't think of anything that gives me the rush I get when I hear the stage manager call out, '5-4-3-2-1.'
Sherri: (on her acting style) I want to believe in and feel what is happening to me. I always try to bring that across. I'm very sympathetic and compassionate myself, and that's Vanessa's [her Sunset Beach character] personality as well. Sincerity and passion come naturally to me.
