In February 2018, after working six years with Oracle, Inc. and IHS Markit, Inc. in Learning & Development and Sales Training & Enablement, Cheryl and her husband Bruce opened a consulting practice to share their expertise.  

  

With 33 years' knowledge behind her, spread between small and medium sized consulting firms, academia, and billion dollar publicly traded organizations, Cheryl is ready to share her innovative ideas about hiring, developing talent and leaders, and building sales enablement frameworks to support sales and operations. 

  

Data2Develop, Cheryl's first entrepreneurial pursuit, gives her immense pleasure as she builds an infrastructure to support her clients and scale as the consulting practice grows. Early in Cheryl's career she automated several small consulting practices, finance systems, and productivity tools as they transitioned from paper and mainframe computers to networked infrastructures. She built Project Management systems, CRM tools, administered Learning Management Systems and is now supporting organizations as they move to the Cloud. 

  

Cheryl is certified to facilitate Everything DiSC Workplace, PXT Select and Five Behaviors, and has also been the customer on the receiving end of these powerful tools while working at Oracle, Inc. and IHS Markit, Inc.

  

Data2Develop uses the PXT Select prior to hiring any team member and is proud to be an authorized partner of PXT Select, Everything DISC and Five Behaviors. Additionally, Data2Develop uses the Zoho integrated suite of applications to run the business and is excited to be an authorized partner of Zoho One and their suite of applications.
