Sherylyn began her work with BNT in 2013 as the Program Manager for the Healthy Homes Initiative. Her primary focus is on lead remediation and BNT’s impact on lessening the number of confirmed cases of children with elevated blood lead levels under the age of six. Sherylyn received her Bachelor’s degree from Springfield College and went on to complete her Master’s degree in Management & Organizational Development from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hartford, CT in 2005. She received her Project Management certification from UCONN-Stamford and has extensive experience in the management of teams and process improvement through lean principles. Sherylyn has prior work experience as a Senior Technical Analyst and Project Manager with AT&T. She gained recognition at the senior management level for her project management skills while helping to successfully champion and complete the East Coast region merger between SNET, Connecticut’s local bell operating company and AT&T, resulting in significant cost savings for the company throughout the east region. Prior to 2008, Sherylyn opted for a career change. She is certified as a Healthy Homes Specialist and is currently pursuing her LEED-AP credential. Before joining BNT Sherylyn worked for the Green Team and took part in Bridgeport’s South End Historic Neighborhood Revitalization Plan and successfully managed the deconstruction of the nationally historic Mary & Eliza Freeman Homes. Built in 1848, they are the oldest CT homes built and listed on the National Register of Historic Places for their significance to African American and Women’s history and soon to be the centerpieces of a museum, research, and education center. Sherylyn is a member of the CTGBC; a subsidiary of the U.S. Green Building Council.
