Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! My name is Sherri Gordon, and I am a active mother of two wonderful children, Kendell 11 years and Kailyn 6 years and a loving wife to my husband, George. I enjoy working out bright and early at the Burlington-Riverfront YMCA and being a cheerleader for my little ones during their baseball, softball, basketball and field hockey games! Family means a lot to me.
What’s your Y story?
From attending Camp Worth as a youngster to now bringing my two children to swim lessons or basketball leagues, the Y has been a huge part of my life. Knowing that they Y is a safe place for my family and enriches them with great values such as having confidence, being kind and understanding of self worth! I am excited to make more AMAZING Y memories with my Mt. Laurel YMCA staff.

If you could pick any superhero power, what would you choose and why?
I would pick two:
- The power to heal so I can take away any pain that makes one suffer.
- The other would be endurance because there just isn’t enough time to sleep to get everything done in one day!
What are your favorite things to do on weekends?
Attending Kendell or Kailyn’s sporting events and being their biggest cheerleader! Even though sometimes they may be embarrassed by my loud mouth.
What did your 5-year-old self want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher or a nurse, I love helping others.
