Sherry meets Lorelai and Rory in 2.14, when Christopher brings her to Rory's debate. She tells Lorelai that she really wants to bond with Rory, and she and Rory spend the next evening together. In 2.22 Christopher visits Lorelai and Rory, and he tells Lorelai that things are not working out between him and Sherry.

After two years, Sherry abandons Christopher and Gigi to take a job in Paris (5.06), and she and Christopher split up.
