Sherri Ginger reaches sky-high goals

If you’ve flown on a Delta Air Lines flight, Daniel Island resident Sherri Ginger may have been piloting your aircraft. Or perhaps you saw her on an episode of HGTV’s “House Hunters” featuring her second real estate purchase on Daniel Island.

The Air Force veteran’s many accomplishments make her a standout in the community.

Ginger was inspired to become a pilot at age 11 after sitting in the cockpit of her father’s HH-60 Black Hawk during a “Bring Your Daughter To Work Day.” At the age of 17, Ginger joined the military and while serving she was awarded a full scholarship to her dream school, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. After graduating with a bachelor of science in aeronautical science she earned a position as a pilot in the United States Air Force (USAF).

“I spent nine years serving my country, piloting the C-17A Globemaster here in Charleston, as well as the T-1A Jayhawk and the E-11A BACN Aircraft. Most of my military career was spent overseas, deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. I then transitioned into the corporate aviation industry as a BBD-700 Global Express/Global Vision Captain at the age of 30, where I performed VIP passenger operations for celebrities, athletes and politicians worldwide as Pilot In Command. Wanting to pursue a more balanced life, I found a career in the airline industry.”

The 36-year-old is currently employed as a B737 instructor pilot, check pilot, and first officer at Delta Air Lines. She trains both new and seasoned pilots and flies jets and works as a pilot about three months a year.

Even with her busy schedule, Ginger still finds time to help others. She volunteers as a propel mentor at her work for three college graduates with dreams of becoming Delta Air Lines pilots.

Ginger works with her good friend and fellow veteran Brooke Kahn, locally promoting her nonprofit organization, “She’s the Veteran.” The organization’s goals are to educate, advocate, and correct the misperception of the female veteran. Ginger is also an active member of local VFW Post 3137 and the Junior League of Charleston.

“I’m still not done,” Ginger continued. “I’m always looking for the next step. Just this year I was accepted into the Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Charleston 2022 class and have started my own consulting company.”

Ginger has received many awards and accolades. At the age of 24, Ginger finished the USAF Joint Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training as a distinguished graduate and received the AETC Commander’s Flying Training Award.

Recently, Ginger was named among the 40 Under 40 by the Charleston Regional Business Journal. She was thrilled to be included, “I feel humbled and honored to be named among the top 40 under 40 of Charleston.”

Parents Charlotte and Richard Surmanek have always been proud of their daughter. “She’s always had that special twinkle in her eyes and Sherri continues to amaze us,” said her mother, Charlotte. “We are so very proud of her accomplishments and are blessed to have her as our daughter and as a great role-model for others to follow.”

For those who’d like to follow in her footsteps, Ginger has some advice. “Show some grace. Grace on yourself. Grace on others. The road ahead is not easy. If it was easy it wouldn’t be worth it. Remember failure and mistakes are just part of the process of success. And most importantly, remember everything you want is on the other side of fear.”

The Credit One Charleston Open, the largest women’s-only tennis tournament in North America, will celebrate its 50th year April 2 - 10, 2022 on Daniel Island.

Credit One Stadium will expand from 7,500 seats to 11,000 seats and feature 16 fully conditioned permanent suites, all-new concessions, more bathrooms and a 75,000-square-foot Stage House with a partial roof. The Stage House will transform the stadium experience for tennis players, entertainers, media and special guests, offering locker rooms, a gym, training facilities, production and media space, catering amenities and a VIP rooftop restaurant and outdoor bar. The roof of the Stage House will also provide partial shade for attendees at the tennis tournament and act as a support structure for concerts and special events.

“These past two years have afforded us time to embrace change and welcome new opportunities. We are excited to be back together in 2022 to open a newly renovated stadium; welcome a new title sponsor and most importantly celebrate our 50th year of professional women’s tennis with our loyal fans in person,” said Bob Moran, Credit One Charleston Open Tournament Director. “It will truly be one of the best tennis and entertainment venues in the world and we can’t wait to show it off to our players, partners, volunteers and fans. All of the challenges we faced when the pandemic started made us stronger and more appreciative of the sport we love, and we’re very excited about the future of tennis and entertainment here in Charleston.”

“Credit One Bank is proud to be a part of the history and future of women’s tennis in Charleston. We’re also grateful for the opportunity to sponsor the most preeminent entertainment venue in the world,” said John Coombe, senior vice president of marketing at Credit One.

The Credit One Charleston Open will celebrate its 50th year in 2022.

Brain injury, PTSD survivors to receive equine-assisted therapy at new Wando-based stable

Just off of bustling Clements Ferry Road and Highway 41, there’s a quiet horse farm nestled in the Francis Marion Forest that offers an environment of peace with a purpose.

The long, crunchy gravel road that leads to the farm forces drivers to slow down and take in their surroundings. A canopy of trees forms a shady tunnel where the trees part, sunlight shines through to expose a lush and dreamy haven that appears to be lit in technicolor. Majestic peacocks, spry chickens, waddling ducks, an assortment of dogs, two donkeys, and 12 horses roam the 18-acre property known as Saltaire.

In February 2021, Saltaire Stables and Farm was established. Sarah Lustig, a registered nurse, pursued a long-time goal: to open a therapeutic trail riding sanctuary for those silently suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Survivors of this trauma often struggle to readjust to life, and due to lack of knowledge about rehabilitation resources, they may be left feeling isolated, weak, and detached from society.

After seeing so many TBI and PTSD survivors silently suffering and not being given the chance for readily available care, Lustig decided to combine her nursing background with her lifelong love for horses to provide the community with a therapeutic retreat. She acquired the farm’s horses from Grace Farm, a nonprofit rescue group dedicated to the care of neglected animals. When the horses arrived at their new home, they were trained for a new job: to rescue humans.

“Caring for horses requires concentration, selflessness, and teamwork. Equine-assisted therapy programs have been shown to help improve self-esteem, self-awareness, confidence, and empathy, which is our ultimate goal,” she noted.

Lustig continued, saying their vision at Saltaire is “to empower and provide an outlet for survivors (and their families), in hopes that they will overcome post trauma stressors and lingering brain injury deficits through the therapeutic healing that horses provide. Our hope is that participants regain their footing, strengthen their pride,

manage their symptoms, and rediscover their purpose again.”

“I also welcome frontline nurses and doctors to explore reconnection, purpose, and strength as we strive to climb out of COVID,” Lustig added.

In addition to offering philanthropic activities to post-trauma syndrome patients, Saltaire will facilitate private boutique-style trail ride experiences to individuals and corporations interested in employee enrichment training through trail riding, equine assisted services, and horsemanship.

An official opening date is planned for early 2022. Once the trail riding program is up and running smoothly, Lustig’s partner, Taylor Messervy, who is also a Registered Nurse, plans to open a 10-bed residential facility just a few miles from the farm. The facility will house moderate to high functioning traumatic brain injury patients to assist in their rehabilitation recovery before transitioning back home. It will provide 24-hour supervision, assistance with activities of daily living, and transportation to and from Saltaire Stables where residents will participate in therapeutic equine activities and work hardening programs. Messervy and Lustig are both certified brain injury specialists with a passion for helping survivors during their long road to recovery.

Saltaire has begun calling on local businesses and corporations to request sponsorship. “So far we have one sponsor, Andrew Ciappa from Janney,” Lustig noted. “Their sponsorship assisted Saltaire in purchasing additional saddles and bridles for horses that were just accepted into the program and we couldn’t be more grateful!”

Volunteer opportunities are available at Saltaire. The community can also support the farm by purchasing trail ride packages. Donations are accepted and donor plaques will be displayed in various areas of the barn. Horses require consistent and reliable love and care as well as food, water, shelter, and constant assessments with grooming to be happy and healthy.

“Saltaire Stables appreciates anyone in the Charleston community or outside area who would be willing to donate their time or services,” Lustig said.
