As the visionary CEO of Vivid Bridge Studios, Cheryl guides the company’s overall direction by developing out-of-the-box solutions that are results-oriented and people-focused. She strategizes and communicates new initiatives and partnerships that keep the brand relevant and trending above the growing number of small video production companies in the area. Cheryl also mentors and coordinates educational training for the team to enhance knowledge and learning opportunities, which contribute to their personal and professional growth.
Together with four other partners, including her husband Ben, Cheryl has led Vivid Bridge to achieve consistent, year-over-year growth. Before Vivid Bridge, Cheryl and Ben owned and operated MurphyWerx, where they provided marketing assistance, training and coaching services to REALTORS. Her services were so successful that eight of her clients accounted for 80% of the top-selling agents in Escambia & Santa Rosa counties. Through those relationships, Cheryl built a network of connections that continued to expand as she joined Business Networking International (BNI) in 2012 and Pensacola Young Professionals (PYP) in 2015. As a result, her home-based business grew beyond what she had ever anticipated.
Cheryl credits much of her success to the entrepreneurial spirit that began when she was just a young child. Her enduring passion for bringing joy to others led Cheryl to build lemonade stands in the summer and sell friendship bracelets throughout her elementary and middle school years. Her work ethic and curiosity for forging her path continued to blossom through her young adult years, which allowed her to make her mark in unconventional ways.
Married for over ten years and a mother of two wonderful young men, Cheryl lives in Pensacola, only a hop, skip, and a jump from America’s most beautiful beaches and the home of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Most importantly, Cheryl is a faithful follower of Christ with a soul full of joy whose primary mission is to lead others to find and hold onto joy in their professional lives.
