Perspective from the District Governor
Perspective from the District Governor

Sharon is our District Governor for Rotary year 2024 to 2025 and her home club is Minneapolis
Rotary Club #9. She celebrates her 21st anniversary in Rotary this year!
Sharon owns one of the largest private investment firms wholly owned by a woman in
Minnesota and Florida. She says she attributes much of this success to Rotary. This is where
she learned her public speaking and leadership skills, and her fellow Rotarians mentored her
and welcomed her into this community. She is committed to giving back to Rotary. In 2023 she
completed the largest ever fundraiser for our Rotary District – raising $3 million on top of the
usual annual $1 million as District Foundation Chair.
For fun she coaches the top 150 women in global tennis on financial behaviors. She is a five-
time Minnesota State Fair blue ribbon winning flower arranger and she collects shoes of very
famous women including Margaret Thatcher and Audrey Hepburn.
