One of the main reasons she went to Duke was actually the fact that they had her favorite sport as a major part of their sports calendar; hockey.
For Cherry, hockey has always been like a little piece of air she just couldn’t live without. From an early age, she has been playing hockey and has had quite a number of achievements playing the sport.

Her brilliance in the game of hockey enabled her to be chosen for the England’s under 21 hockey squad for three consecutive years; 2011, 2012 and 2013. In those competitions, she won a bronze medal and for European Championship, a silver medal. She also went on to win the Volvo 4 Nations Championship.
Cherry started dating Ed Sheeran in July 2015 and the two only engaged three years later in January 2018. In 2016 she moved from the USA back to the UK to be with Ed. Her wedding was a small secretive one with only close friends and family, no celebrities were invited.

Currently she works in New York as a British Advisory Consultant. She is also active on social media networks including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Her net after the marriage to Ed Sheeran can be assumed to be of $37 million. Another source of her income is hockey where she has maintained quite a number of positions for smaller teams.
