Duchess of Louisiana XXIX Sherry Roche

Duchess of Louisiana XXIX, Sherry Roche, was born in New York, but considers herself a Louisiana native since she was raised in the Shreveport area since the age of two.

As the Catastrophe Services Section Manager for State Farm, Sherry travels all over the U.S. in the wake of weather events. This spurred her love of traveling domestically and abroad.

Her other hobbies include spending time with friends and family, but most importantly raising her beagle who happens to be named for one of her martial arts heroes, Chuck Norris. Martial arts have played a significant role in her life since she was young. She is currently getting ready to test for her 7th degree black belt in taekwondo and is promoting the sport as the leader of United Taekwondo Alliance Women’s Council.

As a four year member of the Krewe of Gemini, Sherry is excited to represent Louisiana with her fiancé, Scott.
