Sherry Speikers


I'm a hockey mom and wife who really appreciates a well-made pair of mittens. My husband (Peter), son (Colin) and I enjoy family movie night, the outdoors and snuggling with our slobbery English Bulldog, Maude. Although not native Iowans, we love that Iowa has become our home. When I'm not with my family or fixing up our 100-year old house, I can be found running, practicing yoga, reading or consuming inordinate amounts of extra-shot lattes, Sriracha sauce and soft serve ice cream—but not together.

You are a superhero. What power would you choose?
The power to capture time in a bottle and use as needed. Or maybe give it to others—"the gift of time"—literally.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
A handstand in the middle of the room.
