MHG Insurance Brokers has been serving the marine industry, businesses, and groups and individuals around the world since 1991. A lot goes into a business lasting more than 25 years. Even more goes into a business experiencing success and continuing to grow during that time. While much of it can be attributed to a company’s philosophy, structure, and culture, a business is nothing without the people who execute that philosophy and help create a one of a kind culture. Being in business for over 25 years is no small feat, and much of what is responsible for a business’s success are its people!

Before MHG

Sherry is originally from Roanoke, a small town in southwestern Virginia. She attended Virginia Tech University where she graduated with a degree in Communications. Soon after finishing college, Sherry went to work on ships with Norwegian Cruise Lines as a Gift Shop Sales Associate. She only planned to stay in the cruise industry for a year or two, and 30 years later she has stayed within the industry in one way or another, holding managerial positions for different cruise lines, concessionaries and various companies supporting the cruise industry.

MHG Timeline

Due to Sherry’s extensive background within the cruise industry, she became a perfect candidate to join MHG’s cruise division as her most recent experience was with cruise line Shore Excursions. She joined the company in June of 2016 as a Manager within the Cruise Division. Working at MHG allows her to apply her cruise industry experience, as she can recognize the needs of cruise lines as well as the officers and crew members onboard, and ensuring both receive the best service possible.


Growing up, Sherry studied all types of dance, piano, and singing. One way she can connect with her passions is by taking Jazzercise classes. She believes keeping music in her life is important, even if it’s just taking an exercise class. She also enjoys going to live events whether they are individual singers, bands, and Broadway performances.
