Sheryl Fielding began volunteering in the fall last year. As part of her Bachelors of Science in Nursing program she worked on a community assessment project focusing on food insecurity, which led her to the Food Club. She is working full time but finds time to volunteer on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Sheryl also became involved with the Food Council and Mason County Live Well Committee. She advocates for the needs of families in Mason County. Recently, she was instrumental in an application process to the state for the Double Up Food Bucks program. This program rewards families using Bridge cards and SNAP benefits, by adding one dollar for every dollar used for fresh vegetables and fruits. Stay tuned to learn if the application is approved, and where families can shop locally for the program.
Sheryl has lived in Ludington for three years, moving here from Ann Arbor. She has worked at the University of Michigan Hospital for over 30 years. She is the Clinical Quality Lead for TAVR (Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement) and travels throughout the state. She can tell you more about it!
