Sherri Sotnick

San Jose, California

Sherri Sotnick lives in San Jose, California with her two sons, ages 7 and 17. Though being a mom is her highest priority, she has been a full-time writer (both technical and creative), editor, and content strategist for 20 years. Several of those years were for a high-tech company in the field of oncology where she also managed a team of 17 technical writers (spread across offices in North America and Europe) and became a requested speaker at several different national conferences for her content strategies. She recently finished treatment for stage II breast cancer.

Since her diagnosis and treatment, Sherri endeavors to live in the moment and maintain a healthy balance between her work and personal life. She is interested in nutrition and exercise and practices yoga and meditation regularly. She is passionate about helping others, particularly those dealing with cancer diagnosis, treatment, or survivorship and has always carved out time in her busy life for volunteer work in the community.
