My name is Sherri Porter and I am a social worker! I chose many years ago to become a social worker as I had always been the one person in my circle of friends that everyone came to for help and advice.
Even as a teenager, I felt a sense of satisfaction in helping others. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and attended Southern Illinois University where I earned a Bachelor of Social Work degree. I have worn a number of hats as a social worker, with various agencies in Illinois and North Carolina.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the variety of jobs I have held as it has afforded me to be able to reach out and help those less fortunate than myself.
