Sherri was born in Chicago and raised with her three sisters in the city's nearby suburb of Hoffman Estate, where their father (since retired) managed a McDonald's franchise. In 1990 she decided to attend a trade college and began to work as a legal secretary. A self-described "class clown," Sherri always wanted to pursue a performing career "and marry Michael Jackson," but after witnessing comedian Andrew Dice Clay on stage, she was egged on by her pals to put her own act together - even if it was a part-time gig at night.

For the next five years, Sherri typed legal documents by day and was a struggling standup comedienne at night. Sherri got her first break on the comedy Cleghorne!. Unfortunately, when the series was cancelled after one year, Sherri had to resume her life in the legal office. Two years later she decided to take the plunge and pursue acting and standup work full-time.

She landed guest-starring roles on Friends, Living Single and Suddenly Susan, on which she later became a series regular in 1999. She also was a recurring member of The Jamie Foxx Show as Sheila, from 1998-2000, and is still remembered for her recurring role as Sgt. Judy Potter, the opinionated cop, on Everybody Loves Raymond. Most recently she starred in the television series Emeril and My Adventures in Television.

In her spare time Sherri enjoys playing an intense game of Taboo, karaoke singing, skiing, skating, church activities, watching gymnastics and helping her friends as their "designated babysitter." She recently married actor and comic Jeff T., and they reside in Los Angeles with their two retrievers, Angel and Shatzi.
