SHERRY'S STORY

Sherry’s Activities

Contractor, TV Host & Passionate DIYer!

Sherry Holmes grew up watching, working and playing with her dad, Mike Holmes. As early as 16-years-old she began working behind-the-scenes of Mike’s breakout series, Holmes on Homes®. In 2008, Sherry decided to strap on her own tool belt and travelled to New Orleans to help build a hurricane- and flood-resistant home for a victim of Hurricane Katrina, in Holmes in New Orleans.

Since then she has been a permanent member of Mike’s Make it Right crew, first on Holmes Inspection, then on Holmes Makes It Right, and now on Holmes: Next Generation, on DIY Network. Up next, Sherry will be joining the cast of HGTV’s hit show Home to Win later this year.

“If you’re thinking about getting into the trades, go for it! If it’s your passion learn as much as you can. It might be harder than you think to make your mark but I promise you it will be worth it. It just might change your life”

As a big supporter for youth who want to get into the trades, Sherry continues the family support to Skills Canada and World Skills. She also mentors young women through Conestoga College’s Jill of All Trades and Build A Dream, and acts as an Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity’s Annual Women Build Event, a program that calls on women to help build stronger, safer communities.

Through public speaking, media appearances and her social media influence, Sherry continues to change the face of Canada’s skilled trades workforce, demonstrating that women can bring an entirely new dimension to the construction industry that makes it fundamentally stronger from the ground up.

Dad tried to get me out to the job site for years before he finally succeeded. It was our rebuild in New Orleans. It was an opportunity to help someone in need, a chance to travel, and an opportunity to learn some new skills. Like I mentioned before, stepping onto my first job site was intimidating. But once I was there, I set to work. I worked twice as hard as the guys on the crew, and took shorter breaks. When I found a job in need of doing, I learned how to do it! My message to youth and women considering a career in the trades-DON'T GIVE UP.
