Sharon has been on the Restore A Child Board since 2016, and loves connecting people to this ministry. She spent the first 24 years of her professional life as a critical care Registered Nurse or Nursing Professor in Toronto Ontario. Her love for people and service eventually led her to work for the Adventist denomination. She moved to the United States in mid 2014 to work as the Associate Director for the North American Division’s Adventist Learning Community.
After several years with the NAD she has returned to her first love of nursing, and is now a Nursing Professor at Notre Dame of Maryland University in Baltimore Maryland. In her role at Notre Dame, she teaches Nursing Foundations, and supports adjunct faculty and nursing students in the simulation lab and clinical placement sites. She remains active with the North American Division and Adventist higher education entities as a consultant on several projects. She recently graduated from Andrews University with a PhD in Leadership and hopes to use her newfound knowledge and skills in service for others. Sharon and her husband Tim have 3 adult children. Tim is Associate Treasurer for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and manages the investment portfolio for the world church. Together they have committed their lives to creating a better future for others.
