MEET YOUR HOST
As a young woman, I moved from my hometown in rural Oregon to New York City on a dare and ended up with a successful, thriving life and career. I met + married my dream man, rocked it at work, and felt like I was living the dream.
After a move to San Francisco, I left the corporate world to take care of my precious babies, but in what felt like no time at all, my babies were no longer babies. As they started to grow up and leave the nest, I realized I was staring into my own unknown future. I missed the bold Sheryl from New York! I felt out of touch with the person I once was, living on a dare in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Even though everything on paper was wonderful in my life - fabulous family, amazing community, and beautiful home - this time of transition was truly unsettling.
In hopes of finding what was next for me, I ended up on a women’s hunting retreat in Texas, and instantly felt the spark of connection with my younger self, the one who was courageous enough to move to NYC on a dare. And it was thrilling to reconnect with that bold part of myself again.
I realized that I had far more grit and gumption inside me than I remembered. I felt a bold awakening from the experiences I had on that trip, but when I got home, my family didn’t quite know what to do with that transformation in me. I felt triumphant at my newfound courage, but was challenged in how to share that with my family and friends.
I knew I wanted to create something equally wonderful and transformative for women, but with a kind of support to help women navigate the entire experience, not just the “trip” -- starting before the trip begins, and offering continued support upon the return home. This retreat, my friends, is just that. We’ll be rallying around you before, during, and after the Dare to Detour weekend, because we know firsthand how important it is to hold onto the authenticity we discover within ourselves.
I’m so looking forward to meeting you.
