Sheryl is a Strategic Account Associate whose main focus is finding the best fit keynote speaker for each individual client. She works alongside the EVP to create seamless bookings for her Fortune 5000 clients. She brings her five years of experience as a BigSpeak Event Manager, as well as her 15 years of event planning within the non-profit sector to her current role. She is dedicated to her high demand work life and it’s not rare to find her in the office at 5 am buttoning up the final details with a client in China.
Sheryl is originally from Louisiana and has no shortage of southern charm and bayou stories of gator fights — she’s Cajun tough with all the sweetness of mint julep. After graduating from Louisiana State University, Sheryl headed to New York City to begin her career at The Conference Board and later moved to Greenwich, CT where she worked with faith-based youth organizations. Eight years ago, Sheryl headed out west to Santa Barbara, CA to begin a new adventure. Continuing to utilize her experience in event planning, Sheryl worked at the Arthritis Foundation before coming to BigSpeak. She finds it inspiring to be a part of BigSpeak’s mission to bring transformation through world-class speakers and creating dynamic events.
When she is not buried in email, Sheryl is most likely enjoying the lifestyle of Santa Barbara by learning to surf, wine tasting, running, and volunteering.
