Shari Winard, Community Liaison

Shari Winard

Shari has been a resident of New Rochelle for 18 years and raised both her children in the downtown area. Fluent in Spanish, she has worked as an ESL teacher for 7 years in Westchester and the Bronx, and as a teacher’s aide in both special education and traditional classrooms for 3 years in the New Rochelle school system. Prior to working as a Community Liaison for NR Future, she managed her own consulting business advising clients including The Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in the Bronx and “Green Terrariums” author, Maria Colletti on web development, social media, and public relations.
Shari graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wittenberg University with a concentration in East Asian studies and sociology. Shari’s background in web development and social media led to her involvement in setting up and maintaining the computer network in the downtown entertainment complex known as “New Roc” while it was under the management of Sports Plus.  I am proud to advocate for the development of the community in which I've lived for over 18 years.
