In coordination with the Philadelphia Workforce Investment Board, Cheryl has provided leadership in bringing federal, state, and foundation grant funds to the Philadelphia region to retrain laid off hospital workers, assist TANF recipients to receive skills training, and educate nursing, allied health, health information, human services, and child care workers at every step of the career ladder, from entry-level certificates through Associate's, Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

Cheryl serves on the Philadelphia Council for College and Career Success (Youth Council), and the Economic Advisory Council of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank. She served on the Education and Training Healthcare Subcommittee of the President Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board (PERAB), and testified before the US Senate HELP Committee on WIA reauthorization.
