Sherryl Schown is originally from Denver, Colorado, and she is excited to join the Sitka team as a senior product owner. She is an award-winning, experienced project and portfolio professional who specializes in managing a cross-section of programs that meet the vision of her public and private sector clients. She holds a Master's and Bachelor's from Regis University in Business Administration, Computer Science, and Storage Area Networks.
She is an effective facilitator and leader of the product line – with a passion for ensuring quality, compliance, controls, and management of standards (CGEIT, PMP, PII, PHI, HIPAA, Federal, Local, and State Government).
Outside of work, Sherryl enjoys gardening, hiking, and visiting historically important locales nationwide. She has a special interest in visiting ghost towns and 'haunted' sites. She and her wife of 13 years (Stephanie) have a 29-year-old daughter (Shary) and 4 dogs in their home in Oregon City.
Sherryl and Stephanie also enjoy getting their "science-fiction" on every now and then at regional science fiction conventions. This shot is from the StarFest Convention in Colorado.
