Working with Sharon proved to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life.
Marva Wilkes - CEO, Education Gateway
Sharon began her corporate career with American Express Travel Related Services in New York City, where she quickly became a trainer and named among the top 5% of all American Express personnel worldwide. Despite a promising corporate career with American Express, Sharon took the plunge to help her husband, Wayne, found the Gill Law Firm, a business litigation law practice that the duo took from the start-up phase to eventually becoming a part of one of the fastest growing legal conglomerates in the country. During its existence, the firm won numerous awards for being a community impact player, while serving a diverse mix of small businesses and many Fortune 500 companies.
Not satisfied with corporate success alone, Sharon co-founded Oasis Compassion Agency, a not-for-profit agency, that reached into the community to feed, clothe and empower the less fortunate. During Sharon's tenure, the agency dispensed millions of pounds of food to the needy, taught resume building, job skills and gave counseling to its clientele. The agency ministered to women and families, particularly, helping those in need to restore their dignity and to launch self-sufficient micro-businesses.
Seeing the good that could be accomplished when private companies partnered with Oasis to create life-change, Sharon began to reach out to other business and community leaders to embrace a vision of purpose-centered leadership—the idea of lifting up people without sacrificing profit. In 2015, she launched her online coaching and empowerment business in earnest, reaching thousands of women on a weekly basis and changing lives for the better. Sharon is also a spiritual mentor to an equal number of women through her GORGEOUS Woman Movement. She is the mother of two amazing children and one equally amazing grand-munchkin.
