Sheri M. Whitley

Sheri completed her undergraduate studies at Columbia University, Columbia College, where she studied architecture and anthropology. After working for Robert A.M. Stern Architects, she switched professions, moving to magazine publishing. She memorized the major style guides at Black Enterprise and Ms., where she was managing editor. She joined Columbia’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs in 2004 and—having added quantitative data gathering to her skill set with a master’s degree in sociology from Columbia’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences—is now executive director of digital strategy, helping set editorial and branding guidelines and leading University-wide digital projects and advertising. In her spare time, she loves sailing, kayaking, and trying to turn her hydrangeas blue. She also really wishes Simon Kinberg would make a movie about Roque and Mystique.
