Sherri Brown grew up primarily in Charleston, West Virginia, and attended college at Washington and Lee University in Virginia.  After early graduate work at Yale University Divinity School and Columbia University School of Social Work, and following a stint in the US Peace Corps and several years working in the international development field, she returned to graduate school at the Catholic University of America to pursue a PhD in Biblical Studies.
