Long a keen observer of people and relationships, Sherene offered her first, albeit unsolicited, marriage advice before she could drive. Although it was rejected, Sherene went on to earn a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and has spoken on three continents and extensively throughout the United States. 

She started her career as a college administrator, but after discovering her passion for unlocking “the light bulb of learning”, Sherene became a professor. After 18 ½ years of pouring into graduate students, she transitioned into being a full-time motivational speaker.  

Sherene is the author of Navigate: Understanding the Five Types of PeoplePick: Choose to Create a Life You LoveSeven Ways To Get Your Team Fully Empowered and Engaged Guidebook, and The Busy Students' Guide to College and Career Success. She also addresses leadership and workplace issues as a syndicated magazine columnist and has been cited in numerous publications including the Wall Street Journal and Speaker Magazine.


Over the years three things became crystal clear to Sherene:

  1. People are complex.

  2. The better individuals understand themselves and others, the easier it is to successfully navigate life, leadership and relationships.

  3. Caring, hard working professionals are at extremely high risk for burnout.

​Authentic, quick-witted and highly engaging, Sherene provides her clients with fresh perspectives and doable tactics to increase engagement, productivity and purpose.
