About SR

January 28, 2011

Sheryl Ross has always loved people, the arts and animals.  From a very early age she expressed her ideas through writing & images, and was taught to make her own decisions.  She was the center of attention in a world of adults who owned their own businesses and knew how to command authority.  Both of her parents, as well as her Aunts and Uncles had very diverse companies.  From retail stores to the entertainment industry, she was exposed to these enterprises on a regular basis.  That unique position afforded her an extraordinary childhood that few people get to experience.  It is what she attributes her business acumen and enthusiasm for life!

She has spent over 35 years perfecting the art of creating.  Her skills in writing, producing and marketing have made her the recipient of three national media awards: a 1981 Public Awareness Award for Marketing from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting; a 2001 Telly Award in the Social Services category and a 2002 Aurora Award in Community Relations, for Writing and Producing.

Since the 1980′s, Ms. Ross has consulted and worked with numerous small businesses, human relations groups and arts agencies.  She has garnered national achievement for new ways of thinking regarding: corporate identity and marketing strategies, initiated non-profit agency leadership and configuration standards and created successful public awareness campaigns.

Her eclectic combination of “outside the box” business practices paired with her social services and arts industry knowledge has benefited many diverse groups including: the Department of Theater & Dance, SUNY Buffalo; Studio Arena Theater; Empire State Ballet; Niagara Frontier Folk Arts Council; University at Buffalo EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY CENTER; Cystic Fibrosis; Sudden Infant Death Syndrome; Jewish Community Alliance; Project C.H.A.N.C.E.; Planned Parenthood of Collier County; The Joe Logsdon AIDS Foundation; Women’s Network of Collier County; Collier County TRIAD S.A.L.T.; The Local Applause Network and Save Africa Global.

Following a career shift in 1998 that focused on writing and producing for television, documentary-style videos and live performances; she devoted her career to understanding the link between people and technology in the digital marketplace.  She is an advocate of hands-on customer service, truth in advertising, concise dissemination of information and ethical business practices.

In 2006 she joined forces with entrepreneur and web producer, Damien L. Robinson to  form CIME4enterprises.  Ms. Ross believes that the future for businesses and non-profits lies in having the technology necessary to propel them forward while retaining an understanding of humanistic needs.   These elements, along with humor and a zest for life are ever-present in her consulting, marketing plans and Leadership Retreats.

Born in Buffalo, New York, she attended Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York where she received her degrees in Art & Design and Communications.   She has been a resident of Florida for the last 20-years and currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida with her 3 dogs: CODY, Miracle La Boca and Napoleon, and her cat, Grady.
