Bio

Sherry Williams earned her M.A. from Western Michigan University and her B.A. from Central Michigan University, both in Exercise Psychology. She is also certified by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist.

Her professional background includes positions in cardiac rehabilitation, hospital stress-testing lab, health and wellness consultant and director of a hospital-wellness center. Sherry has also been teaching wellness classes and exercise physiology classes in higher education since 1998.

"Teaching at a university where Christ is central to all that we do is an amazing assignment. Instilling in our students that our discipline is important but that God is greater and even more important is a worthwhile task. 1 Timothy 4:8 teaches 'Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is valuable in every way, because it promises life both for the present and the future' (GNT)."
