Sherri Morrison is a woman of strong beliefs, with profound and rich personal and professional experiences. As a board member of the MMBC, she carries the dream of restoring abundance to the community and its members. As her great grandfather used to say: “Before the [interprovincial] bridge was built, we used to cross the river walking on the back of salmon.” She wants to contribute to the growth of the Mi’gmaq communities with her experience in finance, negotiations, and economic development.
At the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government (LMG), Sherri worked on technical and administrative aspects of the windfarm project. The Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n (MU) windfarm is now generating millions towards the prosperity of the Mi’gmaq, a special source of pride for her. Sherri studied Business Administration at University of New Brunswick and is a certified Professional Aboriginal Economic Developer. From 1999 to 2014, she held various strategic positions for the LMG and was part of the negotiation process for the major Listuguj Land Claim concluded successfully in 2013. In 2014, she went to culinary school, a long-held dream. Sherri continues to advocate for healthy food choices and is often heard saying “nutritious is delicious.”
