Sharon Fennell Kennedy
joined the Pathways to Growth team as a writer and reviewer three years ago. She has dedicated over 26 years to serving nonprofits in many capacities, including grant writing (her passion), fundraising and event planning. Referring to her clients, Sharon states "What I enjoy the most is learning about what they do and how they positively impact our community. Most run on shoe string budgets; to successfully win grants that help them to carry on their missions is very, very rewarding."
Sharon and her husband John live in St. Petersburg. She immerses herself in the community and is active in many civic organizations including The Stuart Society (Museum of Fine Arts), St. Petersburg Women’s Chamber of Commerce, Woman’s Service League, Mayor’s Commission on Aging, St. Petersburg Preservation, and St. Petersburg Bridge Club.
Sharon practices yoga three times a week, walks 2 to 3 miles every other day, plays bridge when time permits and enjoys the company of family and friends.
