Sherry Stanfa-Stanley is a writer, humorist and squeamish adventurer. Fighting midlife inertia, she stares down a year of fear through The 52/52 Project: a year of weekly new experiences designed to push her far outside her comfort zone. Her memoir, Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truth and Dares, debuted in August. Read an amusing excerpt here. By day, Sherry attempts to respectably represent her alma mater as a communication director at the University of Toledo.
