Sherry Clendenon has been an active research scientist for over 20 years (BS Biology, PhD Anatomy and Cell Biology). In her professional life she uses quantitative 4D microscopy to understand how organisms grow and develop. In her copious spare time, she traces and documents her family tree. It has become something of a grand obsession.
Her scientific background coupled with her decades long interest in genealogy make her uniquely qualified to do DNA analyses for genealogy.
