Sharon received a Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude in Art and English with a Psychology minor from James Madison University and spent twenty years working in sales, marketing, and business development for a diverse array of companies and organizations.

When not doing outreach in the community, you’ll find her running boot camps, practicing Pilates, playing tennis, or spending quality time with her husband and two active girls. Her passion for making meaningful relationships has been a common thread throughout her diverse career, and she continues to do this important work enthusiastically with Mountain Valley Treatment Center.
