Cheryl Shero, Executive Director
Cheryl Shero has been the CEO of Gottsche Rehabilitation Center for the past 15 years. Cheryl was born and raised in Wyoming and moved to California to attend college. After 28 years, she came back to her roots in Thermopolis Wyoming. Cheryl was a business owner and real estate developer while serving on the Gottsche board, prior to accepting the position as CEO of Gottsche. Cheryl prides herself in being a vital part of the community and finds her strengths in Business development and leadership. This can be noted with the wide array of organizations she has been involved with such as the Thermopolis Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Economic Development, Wyoming Association of Non-Profits, The Senior Citizens Board, School Booster clubs and activities while her sons were in school, Tobacco and suicide prevention coalition, Founding Father’s committee of Leadership Hot Springs County among many others. Cheryl is one who sees a need in a community, and goes about servicing that need.
Cheryl’s prized success is the addition of four rehab facilities around the State of Wyoming after Gottsche had remained a one clinic operation for 50 years prior. Cheryl took Gottsche from being a half million dollar a year company, to one with 5 facilities that are all ongoing, viable non profit organizations. Cheryl has improved the facilities and the communities they are in by adding wellness centers with state of the art equipment, women’s wellness education and providing facilities that treat those who are in need regardless of the ability to pay. Cheryl is a forward thinker and uses her creativity to make all five Gottsche locations a success and an asset to the communities that they are in.

Also, playing sports in high school and wrestling in college I have been in and around the rehab and therapy realm my whole life. This profession gives me the ability to help those in need, whether it is in need of pain reduction, improving quality of life or returning to sports or hobbies. My primary focus is to help my patient’s return to their highest functional ability in a very fun and relaxing environment.”
