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.

Me (talking about how to water the plants): You mist it.
Dad: I think you missed it.

I was FLOORED when my dad bet me I wouldn't be able to line up the boards throughout the main floor of this house without needing a transition piece. Easiest $100 I ever made! #HolmesNextGen @Make_It_Right
