Cheryl Scott Biography
Cheryl Scott who was born on January 29, 1985, in New Jersey, is an American Meteorologist and geologist. Her mother’s name is Marie Picciano Scott. Cheryl and her two older brothers, Kevin and Brian, were raised in Atco, an unincorporated community in the township of Waterford, located in Camden County, New Jersey. Since childhood, she has harbored a deep interest in science. She was also a talented athlete in her school years. She grew up watching her brothers loving and playing sports and wanted to emulate them. They were fans of the Philadelphia Eagles and other Philadelphia-based sports teams. She often took a starter jacket that belonged to one of her brothers and wore it to school.
Cheryl attended Paul VI High School in Haddonfield, New Jersey, and was part of their track and field games. She also played soccer. According to Cheryl, she was a fast runner and her athletic ability awarded her with several great opportunities. Her track-and-field accomplishments drew the attention of recruiters from various universities. She eventually enrolled in Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. In 2007, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in geological science. In 2010, she got her Meteorology Certification from Mississippi State University.
Her work gave her the opportunity to live all over the US and prior to moving to Chicago, she has lived in her home state New Jersey; Providence, Rhode Island; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Erie, Pennsylvania; and Knoxville, Tennessee.
Not long after Cheryl relocated to Chicago, she started participating in recreational soccer matches. During one of these matches, she was injured and had to be taken to a hospital. She was later told that her Achilles tendon has ruptured. That injury has significantly affected her ability to take part in various recreational activities since then. In 2017, she admitted that she was still recovering and the injury bothered her even then.
