Sherry Martell, LCSW
Sherry Martell, AVASW Social Worker of the 3rd Quarter, is from the Dorn VA in Columbia, South Carolina.  Sherry obtained her MSW from the University of Buffalo and completed her internship at the VA. She has served Veterans for over 25 years in the Emergency Department, Home Based Primary Care, Adult Day Health, and currently in Homeless services.

Sherry works as the Homeless Program Coordinator at the Dorn VA. In her nomination for AVASW Social Worker, it was noted “Ms. Martell consistently goes above and beyond for the Veterans.  She was a leader and innovator.  For Ms. Martell this means taking emergency calls on nights and weekends to assist homeless Veterans and staying late when a crisis arises.  Once again, she strives to meet the needs of all the Veterans seeking services no matter the hour.”   Sherry shared that she loves her position in the Homeless Program. This is evidenced by Sherry residing in Columbia, SC during the week and commuting back to Greenville, SC to her family every weekend.
Sherry shared that “I like to volunteer and be a part of the action.” She enjoys golfing and was the Club Champion last year. Sherry enjoys spending time with her family. She is married and has two sons ages 27 and 30.
From the several nominations for Social Worker of the 3rd Quarter 2018, Sherry was selected as the AVASW Social Worker of the 3rd Quarter. Congratulations to Sherry for the impact she has on Veterans and her colleagues every day!
