Cheryl has an extensive background in fundraising and business development for both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. She is an executive adept at positioning organizations for growth, with a demonstrated prowess to effectively develop and implement strategic marketing and sales plans to achieve or exceed revenue expectations.
Over the last twenty years, in addition to the over $150M funds raised for venture capital, private equity firms, and internal corporate boards, Cheryl has also spent several years raising money for political campaigns. As issues such as poverty, homelessness, education, and the environment loom larger, however, there was a growing realization that the needs of society and the interests of business often overlap. This led Cheryl to develop the children’s online game “NoblePlay,” which rewarded the concept of “giving back” to the communities we live in, as it taught the significant impact it makes to each of us as individuals.
Additionally, as a long-standing advocate for women, Cheryl has participated in diplomatic trips to the Middle East and China promoting Women in Business and Commerce. In recent years, she has donated her time to the State of Florida’s CEO Nexus Roundtable, where she has mentored several non-profit and for-profit CEOs on various issues, including funding. Cheryl’s fundraising efforts continue through her board positions at several charities, universities, and local YMCA.
