Sherrie Clark is an experienced global engineering leader, speaker, coach, and mentor. Sherrie grew up with five brothers, loving sports, math and science, and is now the mother of two sons. As an engineer, she has been in the minority her whole career, and many times is the only female in the room. These experiences have allowed her to be comfortable as woman in male-dominated technical fields. As a young engineer, Sherrie Clark often found herself saying “I don’t want to be a female engineer, I just want to be an engineer.” While this attitude helped her experience success in some respects, she found it also unintentionally locked away important parts of herself, both personally and professionally.
