Thank you for viewing my profile. I would like to share with you what my friends have said about my expertise.
Cheryl is insightful, genuine, caring, supportive, loving, knowledgeable and a very competent performer. I have worked with Cheryl on a number of high-level assignments and projects during my Masters' program. She has always impressed me with the depth and breadth of vision she has for each project she has participated in. Cheryl also has the great ability to sit back and view deeper issues and take apart those issues in a manner that easily resolves obstacles that are keeping teams from moving forward.
