She has eliminated hypertension and improved her heart health over time despite a significant history of heart disease in her family. 

In her book to be released in May 2021, Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease, Sherra brings her message of wellness and healing in particular to African-American women because they are on the front lines of a national health crisis, with less access to health care and resources. She believes African-American women have always challenged the status quo on most fronts in order to survive. Today access to wholesome food, nutrition and comprehensive health care are perfect examples where we all must find our own solutions to thrive. Sherra offers hope, advice and practical tips for good health and great food. She graduated from the University of Houston, travels extensively especially to visit daughters and grandchildren, and lives in Houston, Texas today with her husband.
