Biography

Sherry Winn attended the University of Charleston, graduating in 1986 with a degree in health and physical education. She later earned a graduate degree in sports administration at Ohio University. Winn played basketball at Charleston where she was an academic All-American, twice conference MVP, and was valedictorian of her senior class. Winn was then on the US national handball team from 1981-88. She competed at two Olympics (1984, 1988), won a gold medal at the 1987 Pan American Games, and competed at the 1981 World Junior Championships and the 1982 World Championships.

Winn later became a coach. In her early 30s she developed a chronic pain syndrome and overcame this mostly on her own with a positive attitude and alternative medicine. This led to another career in which she shared her experience with others as a motivational speaker, and attempted to help them reach their highest levels of success.
