With Sherry’s help and gentle guidance, we were able to prioritize our funding needs and identify actionable goals to achieve fundraising success. With her assistance, the Library was able to be more strategic in its approach to raising money for our programs and services.

— Alicia Garcia, development director, waukegan public library foundation


Sherry was my partner in crime as I transitioned from the tech industry to fundraising. Together, we worked to build an intentional and robust annual fund strategy from the ground up at By The Hand. She is exceptionally organized and creative, and brilliant to boot. She is constantly evolving and adapting while remaining grounded in strong, sound data as the basis to all her recommendation. Sherry is agile, decisive and fun to work with. I would, and do, recommend Sherry to anyone looking for a crash course in modern fundraising. 


As a young founder of a growing non-profit . . . I looked to Sherry each week not only for her knowledge and expertise on fundraising, but for general advice, direction, and support. In my experience, it’s rare to find someone who will not only develop a workplan and complete those goals, but also successfully adapt to the dynamic nature of the work and offer such comprehensive support.
