Cheryl's journey began at Tennessee State University where she earned a BS degree in Family and Consumer Science and learned the fundamentals of design. It was during her time at TSU that she began her initial trek into interior design. In fact, her college dorm room often served as the model used to tour prospective students. She later completed her post-graduate studies at Prairie View A & M University becoming a Registered Dietitian, a credential she continues to maintain. To strengthen her design knowledge, Cheryl returned to school locally and obtained a Residential Interior Design diploma from Central Piedmont Community College in 2017. For more than 15 years Cheryl worked at a Fortune 500 company in Charlotte, North Carolina where she was initially employed as a Registered Dietitian and subsequently a human resources professional in diversity and inclusion. It was here she developed her service skills and business acumen. In December 2016, Cheryl left her career in Corporate America to utilize her gift as an interior designer full-time. She has been published in Traditional Home, Country Living, Southern Living, Southern Home, Charlotte Magazine, and Charlotte Home Design and Decor to name a few. She is a nine-time recipient of the Best of Houzz Award for Design and Customer Satisfaction, one of the Black Interior Designers Network's African American Top 20 Designers and in 2019 was named one of Charlotte's Best Interior Designers by Charlotte Agenda. Cheryl currently serves as Design Ambassador for Revolution Performance Fabrics and in 2018 launched her first licensed product line, a five-piece upholstered furniture collection for Sylvester Alexander Fine Upholstery, called Belle by Cheryl Luckett.
