Character Animator at DreamWorks Animation SKG
Her classes were a pleasure. Cheryl allowed me to explore and grow as an animator and artist. Her encouragement and dedication to my education has helped me to achieve my dream of being a feature film animator.
Character Animator at PIXAR Animation Studios
Cheryl has a difficult job of presenting a vast amount of content in a condensed time period. She manages to do this quite well with an undeviating, and direct approach. Handouts she provides in the class prove to be an essential tool, and resource during the class and beyond.
Character Modeler at Blur Studios
Cheryl was a great teacher to have at SCAD. I originally attended SCAD for web design but after taking 3d Character Animation with Cheryl, I quickly switched majors. Her lessons and guidance started me down the great job path I am on today.
Animator at Bluepoint Games
She's one of the best professors at the school. She has a passion for teaching, keeps up with current industry trends, and is always willing to help students. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Cheryl is a great teacher with a great knowledge of character rigging and animation. She keeps you motivated and working hard, but still maintains a laid-back easy-to-learn-from attitude.

I was part of Cheryl's Character Animation I class two years ago and saw first hand her dedication and passion for her craft in teaching. Not only do I view Cheryl as a friend and mentor, but also as someone who managed a class that ultimatley served as a foundation for the start of my career.

Jr. Designer at Disney Publishing Worldwide, The Walt Disney Company
Cheryl is an absolute gem of a professor! She is extremely knowledgeable in the realm of Maya rigging and animation, but what makes her stand out is her unwavering patience and devotion to assisting her students. Whenever things got tough, I knew I could count on Cheryl to respond to all of my email questions concerning the project and problem at hand. Her classes truly helped me build up a strong foundation in Maya, and I can’t thank her enough for her help
Artist/Animator at Powerhouse Animation Studios
Cheryl was the professor of my Principles of 3d Character Animation class. I knew during the course of the class that I was learning a lot, but it wasn't until I tried to coach my roommate on 3d animation (and later, modeling) that I realized the sheer volume of information I'd absorbed in those 10 weeks. This lady really knows her stuff, and she's nothing less than a master at communicating it. What that I could do the same.
Film and Animation Professional
Cheryl's teaching style is always to the point and she leads the class very well using detailed examples, demos and hands on experience. I highly recommend Cheryl to anyone wanting to take a course in 3D character design, rigging and animation or looking to hire her as a professor.
