Born in Heidelberg, Germany, Dr. Cheroll Dossett, MBA/ M.Ed grew up in Great Neck, Long Island and spent her adolescent years searching to find meaning and a place to belong.

Dr. Dossett’s advocacy skills landed her a Fellowship to pursue advanced studies in Business and Education many years later at the age of 35 and 40 years old.
