Born and raised in New Jersey, Reverend Cheryl Burney arrived in Atlanta in 1974 (after 35 years, now a naturalized Southerner). Her first job in Atlanta was teaching ballroom dancing with Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Born and raised in the Catholic church, she was a canter for the church when she had an experience that changed her life. Consequently, she studied to become a minister with the International Centers for Spiritual Living in Atlanta. Cheryl also took a class to become a hospice volunteer, did that for a year, then worked in hypnotherapy for twenty years. When she began to look for other opportunities, one of her friends suggested looking at hospice again. Today, Cheryl is the Director of Complimentary Therapies andVolunteers at Amity Care Hospice. Cheryl is also the founder of Lifeworks, an organization that provides alternative healing therapies and grief counseling. Contact Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Lifeworks website at www.lifeworksinstitute.org.
