Sheri Cortez

Culinary Kitchen Assistant


Sheri was born and raised in Springfield, MO. Her first job was working for Sam Hamara at Wendy’s. She graduated from Glendale High school and then joined the U.S. Army where she spent some time in Heilbronn Germany as a 26Q Communications Specialist and assisted the Supply Specialist ordering supplies for our Battalion.

Over the years she has raised two wonderful children, owned her own house cleaning business, managed a night club and worked in customer service for a bank. As a student of OTC, she worked for the Culinary Department as a work-study and then department assistant her last semester.

Sheri’s favorite part of the job is working with our wonderful staff and students. She’s always loved teaching and training and the joy it brings when you see someone’s face light up when they get it.
