Touching Lives and Making a Difference

In her teenage years, she began volunteering while accompanying her father and mother, Dr. Bill and Veta Sherman, on church mission trips to Jamaica and other underprivileged areas to help those in need. Later, she worked as a summer volunteer at a Nigerian missions hospital in Ogbomosho, Nigeria. Now, with her own family, she has been involved in many medical mission trips. Her husband Tim, an accomplished pilot, has flown volunteers and medical supplies to many villages in Mexico over the last twenty years. Her sons, Jonathan and Jackson, have joined her on mission trips to Africa and Mexico.

Empowering Communities Globally

During her volunteer mission trips, Dr. Sherman has learned that lives can be changed when generous hearts are mobilized to meet crucial needs by donating supplies and services. Dr. Sherman has learned that working with other medical professionals and the people in the international host community allows valuable knowledge-sharing. This new knowledge empowers the local people to improve their own health and the health of others. Dr. Sherman has focused on establishing long-term relationships in mission volunteer work. Each visit builds on the success and struggles of the last trip. Ingenuity is always required as medical supplies, instruments, equipment, and medicine are always in short supply. By working with local health professionals in the international communities, she hopes to help them achieve more independence and a higher level of care.
