Sherry’s Activities

Contractor, Part-time Designer, & weekend DIYer!

Sherry has been watching and working with her dad, Mike Holmes since she was 16. Construction is in her blood. She started out behind-the-scenes of Mike’s breakout series, Holmes on Homes® and has been a crew member since then. She has also appeared in Holmes Inspections and then on Holmes Makes It Right and now co-hosting Holmes Next Generation on DIY.

In 2008, Sherry travelled to New Orleans to help build a hurricane- and flood-resistant home for a victim of Hurricane Katrina, in Holmes in New Orleans. What happened next no one could have predicted: She was hooked. Since then, Sherry has been a permanent member of the Make It Right crew and most recently is helping homeowners on her latest show Holmes Next Generation on DIY.

“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.”

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.

My dad has supported SOS Children's Villages Canada for years, and I'm really proud to be able to contribute to the work he does. In October 2016, I had the chance to visit on the of the SOS villages in central Africa. You can read more about my trip on our website!

The day for the loves of my life

Loki - my beautiful, friendly boy! He loves everyone and plays fetch. Drinks with his paws, and rolls over for love

Duke - my baby. Passed away a few years ago; but I am still not over. He also played fetch, hated visitors, drank out of the toilet, and had a glare that intimidated even me.

Couldn’t imagine life without these boys. Hurts my heart to talk about now 😽
