STUDENT MEMBER(S):

Sherry Johnson


I hail from Seattle originally.  However, I have lived in Southern California for 13 years and San Diego for 1 year and 4 months.  I am currently enrolled in classes at University of San Diego.  I am taking the extended day course, which I will complete in April, 2020.  

Hobbies and interests? Well that's a fun subject! I love rock climbing, canyoneering, snow skiing (on and off piste), road cycling, crocheting (yes it's true), baking, and lounging at the pool.

The past 18 years I've been in the dental field.  As much a I love my patients and my profession, mt back was getting tired of leaning over patients on a daily basis.  Recently married, I've found that I wanted to back to school and work in the legal field to aid my husbands growing Law Firm.  He is a solo and needs someone he can trust working as a paralegal for him to help reduce the overall cost for his clients.  Plus, it's a wonderful step into a new field that fascinates me.
