From @Okieprof, #clarkclassThere's nothing "low key" about Sheri Guyse @MyJrny. This favorite former UCO student and friend may first seem that way when speaking to students in #clarkclass but once she starts answering questions about her multi-faceted experiences, they're intrigued by this exceptional, energetic woman.
As a foodie and a professional, she's communications director dealing with social media and more for nine restaurants for Good Egg Dining Group, a job she helped create after being laid off elsewhere.
She's also a blogger, Really Most Sincerely. ("I love food, music and people") She's studying to be a Life Coach. As a lover of music, she hosts house concerts, Sherry's Living Room; and she's the mother of two children. There's more, like maker of legendary toffee, founding a Rotary Club, and the list goes on. Getting to know people like Sheri make this a dream job for a professor.
