She graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in English in 1973 and shortly after married her high school sweet heart John Christensen on December 29th. The two then moved to California where they raised their two sons Aaron and Steven. Throughout her life Sherrie was an advocate for Cancer patients. She worked first for the National Cancer Institute as an advisor to Cancer patients and their families. Most recently, she worked at Inova Loudon Hospital as a Tumor Registrar.
