Dr Cherie began her career as a critical care registered nurse and later worked as a nurse educator. Following a dramatic life event, and after seeing her Grandma’s need for help to stay at home, she founded her first company, Personal Home Care Services, as a 29 year old. Following her own instincts, she lived the leadership and management values she felt were so important and in doing so built an organization defined by its excellence in customer service, superstar staff and company growth and profitability. She grew it into one of the largest Home Health Agencies in Michigan. As her company grew in size and reputation, so did Cherie’s reputation grow, earning her awards and accolades along the way, including Ernst and Young’s Michigan Entrepreneur of the Year and Crain’s Detroit 40 Under 40, just to name a few. She also started The Center for Counseling, an outpatient counseling center, in New Baltimore, Michigan, and has grown it into a premier outpatient center, with recognized excellence in customer service and superstar staff as well.
In addition to her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Andrews University, where she is an honored alumna, Cherie holds a Masters degree in Healthcare Education with an emphasis in Management of a Healthcare Facility from Central Michigan University and a PhD in Leadership from Andrews University. She is a Board Certified Executive with the American College of Healthcare Executives and has served on the advisory council for The President’s Association of the American Management Association and The President’s Circle of Andrews University. She is the author of Hello, Success! and co-author of The Confident Woman.
Most recently, Dr Cherie Whiting founded the Center for Appreciative Entrepreneurship to promote the understanding of appreciate entrepreneurship, including the education, training and development of entrepreneurs into appreciateurs. It takes an appreciateur to build and grow their business to its fullest potential by using the power of appreciation to fully engage their employees and customers and Cherie found very early on, the power and return on investment of appreciation.
Using her methods and techniques, honed to perfection over years of success in the business world, Dr. Cherie delivers dynamic keynote addresses and break-out sessions on all areas of her expertise, as well as coaches individuals on how to be successful in business and in life, and consults and presents workshops on Organizational Transformation.
