Sherry Hughes
Originally from Louisville, Sherry has been married for almost 49 years and has two grown and married daughters Ellen and Jane. In her spare time, she enjoys having the opportunity to care for her 4 grandchildren – 3 girls and 1 boy. “I love my role as “Grammy!”
A graduate of the University of Louisville, Sherry followed her father’s footsteps by pursuing a career with South Central Bell. Now retired, Sherry has pursued several part-time jobs over the years, including Pottery Barn Kids and now at Hadley Pottery.
“My passion for collecting all of my dinnerware first began while sitting in the bargain aisles and inspecting the remnants before I got married to very recently working in the retail store a few days a week now.”
Recently, Dr Grossfeld helped Sherry through some painful episodes with her feet after an injury was misdiagnosed by another provider and she was recommended to the Orthopaedic Specialists. Luckily, since her treatment with Dr Grossfeld, Sherry’s discomfort has been kept to a minimum until her most recent shoulder injury.
“This summer on June 1st, I tripped over our dog’s bed out on our deck and took a very ungraceful fall which caused my right shoulder to be dislocated.  I saw the doctor the following day and was given some pain medication and instructions on how to handle this new inconvenience. Since then I have seen Dr Grossfeld who prescribed physical therapy and also gave me a cortisone shot to alleviate the discomfort, especially while sleeping.  All of this has helped and the shoulder is improving!”
