Sheri Kurdakul, SRMP

Entrepreneur, Healer, Ordained Minister

I am a change maker. While I will not solve every problem that exists, I can change what I see, hear, think, and do and encourage positive change for all, not just the privileged few.

I am a connector. My network is not singularly focused by design. Everyone is unique and has a perspective that may spark amazing change. Don’t have a table which can only seat a few. Have an open mind where everyone is welcomed to be heard.

I am an optimist. You can see the bad, or you can chose to work on solutions toward the greater good. I choose the latter.

I am a doer. My talents lie in community building, public speaking, design, event management, marketing operations, and business development.

I am approachable. With many years of experience under my belt, I am here to help lift those that come with me, and generations after me.

With gratitude,
