  • My Story

    A communications leader, writer, brand strategist, and an unwavering optimist dedicated to helping high-growth companies and high-profile individuals connect most creatively
    and effectively with their audiences.

    Hi, I’m Sherise.


    I have been a professional in the communications field for nearly 20 years and loved every part of the journey.


    Armed with a dream, passion, and ambition, I have cultivated a career that allows me to work with celebrities, executives, and top-performing companies as a trusted adviser.


    One of the things I’m often asked is, “How in the world did you get started?”


    The answer is that I followed my instincts.


    I thrive on communication, and I’m naturally curious about human nature.

    For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued by the way we interact as human beings. I am fascinated with the way words, or the lack thereof can deeply influence outcomes of negotiations, connections, crises, and other interpersonal interactions. This curiosity led me to pursue an education that helped hone my own natural skills. Since then, I've had the opportunity to apply that learning in real-time across a variety of industries, including entertainment, fashion, sports, legal, academia, healthcare, and nonprofit. These experiences have not only sharpened my expertise, but because they have been so diverse, they have also shaped the ways in which I am able to devise, deploy, and lead successful communications strategies.


    Leveraging the most contemporary and trusted media tools, and working with some of the most recognizable companies in the world (O Magazine, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, the Los Angeles Times, and more), I have a proven track record in securing my clients the kind of brand engagement that ensures consumer loyalty. My contributions have resulted in increased profitability and revenue.


    Whether in my work or in my personal life, trust, integrity, professionalism, and inspiring those around me to be their very best are virtues to which I am entirely committed. Having recently relocated from Los Angeles to the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m very excited to bring my expertise to the right company.


    Outside of my business responsibilities, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, listening to all forms of music, investing in my health and wellness, mountain climbing, and meditating.
