Cheryl Hurd


Cheryl started at Hope in 2017, taking over for the very well known and loved former Administrator, Wanda Nebiolo. 

Cheryl has years of customer service experience along with extensive office and administrative skills. 

She lives in Manalapan NJ with her 11 year old daughter, Adalyn, her large cat, Callie, two ferrets, Mike and Sully, and a one-eyed hedgehog, Hedgie. 

Outside of work, Cheryl spends her time volunteering weekly for a non-profit cat rescue, assists with Outreach Meals with her daughter's Girl Scout troop, is attempting (not-so-successfully!!) to learn how to cross stitch, loves word games and puzzles, and looking for new and exciting places to travel for vacation. 

Cheryl plans to be part of the HLC team for a long time, so stop in and say "Hi" if you haven't already!
