As a big supporter of the TEAM concept, Ms. Sharkey has received supervisory and leadership awards as a manager, and provided professional trainings for demographics ranging from Directors to camp counselors. Her background in education and environmental conservation work brought her to a first-hand understanding of how to build a team up from a motley crew of naysayers to a group of passionate, respectful doers. If more non-profits ran like a business, far fewer would fail. If more businesses cared like a non-profit, they would be more productive with less turnover.
She has had articles published in Florida Environmental Outreach Magazine, obtained grants for various non-profits, and developed a variety of team building and educational programs.
Her favorite color is green and she loves coffee! Ms. Sharkey also has writings at: https://offshoreaquaholic.blogspot.com/
