I am a nurse practitioner at the Scripps Clinic. My practice focuses on Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. In 2009 I founded a research project to transplant dopamine-producing neurons made from patients’ own skin cells, potentially eliminating the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s.
“Sherrie Gould has – literally – taken the level of care of Parkinson’s patients to new and dizzying heights. She knows that, regardless of having a label of a “disease,” each of these people – and their care takers – can push their own boundaries, and she empowers every one of them to embrace life through physical and mental challenges.
“Unstoppable, Sherrie has led Parkinson’s patients to Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Everest Base Camp, Machu Picchu, the Camino de Santiago, and in September 2020 to Italy’s Dolomite mountains. Filled with love and dedicated to giving every patient the absolute best care while driving them relentlessly to a life of exercise and good health, Sherrie is the clinician we all hope we never need, but if we do, there’s no one better.”
