Sheri Hunter is a Journalist, Author, Writer and Marketing Pro.

Sheri has written for newspapers, TV News, magazines and more recently her memoir, Daring to Live: How the Power of Sisterhood and Taking Risks Can Jump-Start Your Joy, for Baker Books. The memoir chronicles her journey of healing following the death of her beloved husband Mannard and the friendship with her fellow Dare Divas.

For 65 days Sheri journeyed solo to 17 countries across Africa and Asia following her husband’s death. “It was my heartbreak tour,” says Sheri. “It was a voyage of a lifetime to see Robben’s Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned and hike the Great Wall of China. Every step of the way I ached for Mannard and there were many tears shed along the way.”

Following that trip, Sheri came home and wrote about her grief and healing for MORE Magazine and National Geographic Traveler Magazine. The later went viral. Sheri toured the Midwest at Barnes and Noble locations in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio where audiences took interest in the Daring to Live challenge and how to channel their own inner adventurer. In 2020, Daring to Live was optioned by Paramount Pictures.

For twenty years Sheri was a Marketing professional working with an educational publisher and an automotive society championing libraries and small businesses.

Sheri has a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and an MBA from Lawrence Technological University.
