Dr. Cherri Seese

sherri I am fascinated by how our families and communities shape who we are.  From my dissertation through my current research, I find that the groups we belong to inform so much of our self-efficacy and identity.  Our stories are shaped by these family and community experiences.  My story includes growing up in a large, close knit extended family is a small town in the Midwest, living in three distinct cultures within the United States, obtaining a Ph.D. and being married for 30 years.  I continue my story as a professor here at Northwest University.  As I interact with students, staff and faculty, I am humbled by God’s story being played out through mine.
