SHERRY'S STORY

Sherry’s Activities

Contractor, TV Host & Passionate 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.

Looking for your help with this one!

What are some of your favourite products/brands/best safety baby items for both myself and Baby Girl need?

Any advice for a first time mom creating a her registry and nursery?

And to answer a common question I’ve been asked: No, we still don’t have a name for Baby Girl!

🙈 Time's ticking!

When I started out, I was the only woman on our job site - but that's rapidly changing, and I think it's something we should celebrate! Anything that breaks down the barriers for more people to enter the trades is a great thing.

Women in Manitoba continue to be under-represented in many areas of training, including the trades. The Manitoba government is pleased to provide $25,000 to @MITTcanada for the Empower Program to help advance women in the trades. #mbpoli

What do you think the biggest barrier is that stops more women from entering the trades? I'm interested to hear your thoughts! @NatlWomeninRoof

Floor warming systems are programmed using a separate thermostat from your furnace. The system attains the temperature you set, providing comfortable and consistent temps without overheating. They still feel warm even in decreased air temps. @schluterNA https://t.co/O5Bqpma075
