Sharyn has dedicated herself to serving her community for over 15 years as a non-profit professional. Most recently she was the director of a military aid society that was staffed almost entirely by volunteers. Sharyn has experience in recruiting, training, mentoring and motivating volunteers. She has worked alongside volunteers in soup kitchens, homeless shelters, inner city children’s programs, and state parks. Working for Matthaei-Nichols brings together two of her greatest loves: the beauty of the outdoors and her passion for making the world a better place. Sharyn is married to a Navy pilot which has given her the opportunity to live in beautiful places around the world. She loves traveling, running, gardening, and reading.
