Sharon served as a member of the U.S. Army where she served seven and a half years as an intelligence analyst and achieving the rank of staff sergeant. After being honorably discharged, she earned a master's degree in human relations from the University of Oklahoma, Norman campus.

In 1994, Sharon moved to Wetzel County from where her husband Jeffery is a native. Together, they raised two sons, Hunter and younger brother Spenser. They are proud of the men their sons have become. Hunter serves the country as an active-duty Airforce staff sergeant married to his wife Mikaylah. Spencer helps save lives as an emergency room travel nurse.

After leaving the military, Sharon moved on to TeleTech Inc. in Moundsville where she acted as training manager for the entire site. In 2001, she was hired by West Virginia Northern Community College - New Martinsville campus where she was executive director until 2004. Her next post was as Head-of-School for Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy in Wheeling, prior to closing in 2008. Immediately after the Mount de Chantal closure, Sharon worked as a Title II claims representative for the Social Security Administration; a position from which she retired in 2013. Most recently, Sharon served as a full-time temporary employee of Catholic Charities disbursing emergency funds under the CARES Act to aid those impacted by COVID-19. 

“It is an honor to serve as the executive director of the Wetzel-Tyler Chamber of Commerce. My career has prepared me as a leader as well as a team member. No one alone can effect lasting change; it is a collaborative and ongoing effort. In that regard, I look forward to working with all of our existing members, while seeking to increase our membership and assisting in the facilitation of real and lasting economic growth to our community. This has been a wonderful place to raise our sons and I’m looking forward to helping strengthen the community so that others may do the same.”
