I AM DR. SHERI-ANN MCLEAN

I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Jamaica, where I had the privilege of growing up in a nurturing and supportive household. Despite our limited resources, my parents prioritized instilling the values and principles that would shape the lives of my siblings and me. Witnessing their selflessness and dedication to giving back to the community, I learned the importance of honesty, kindness, and support.

From a young age, I possessed a reserved nature, yet deep within me, I harbored a burning desire to make a significant impact on the lives of others. I consistently sought opportunities to extend a helping hand, just as my parents did. Whether it was organizing support and donations for my peers during my time in primary school, volunteering at local old age homes, or advocating for the well-being of younger individuals through the big sister program in high school, I was driven to make a difference.

Throughout my academic journey, I have been fortunate to engage in various roles and initiatives that have allowed me to contribute to the betterment of society. As a peer educator, I was privileged to share knowledge and empower my fellow students. Additionally, I served on UWI leads, actively participating in initiatives to foster personal and professional growth. In my capacity as a resident advisor, I provided guidance and support to students ensuring a positive and inclusive living environment. Furthermore, I trained capacity building, enabling me to assist at-risk communities in developing essential life skills. I also had the opportunity to train, coach, and support teachers in inner-city classrooms, focusing on behavior management and reinforcing social and emotional skills.

My educational background is a testament to my commitment to understanding and improving the human experience. I hold a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Capella University, an MSc degree in Applied Psychology, and a BSc in Psychology with a minor in Criminology from the esteemed University of the West Indies in Jamaica.


You won't grow overnight but you will grow overtime.

EVERYDAY IS A CHANCE TO ADD VALUE

The 8-year-old girl who initiated a mini school in her front yard demonstrated a remarkable ability to recognize the value in her peers and friends. Even to this day, she continues to appreciate the worth of others. I firmly believe in fostering supportive environments where individuals feel at ease to develop and flourish. I perceive value in every person I encounter and strive to enhance their lives and experiences.

Witnessing individuals and organizations realize their full potential and transform into the best versions of themselves brings me immense joy. The truth is, as we journey through life’s various stages, there may be moments when we feel inclined to surrender. However, if we surpass that breaking point, the rewards will be extraordinary. I have always believed there is something out there for everyone; sometimes, it only takes a little guidance.

I have encountered numerous challenging circumstances that demanded resilience and determination throughout my life. Fortunately, I had exceptional mentors and a strong support system, which alleviated much of the stress associated with these trials. This process gave me invaluable insights into effectively navigating, supporting, and leading others to success. Over the years, I have diligently applied these principles, making them integral to my character and approach.

I AM READY TO SERVE YOU

I have extensive experience working as a consultant and capacity-building trainer, specifically focusing on at-risk communities in Jamaica. Additionally, I have facilitated training sessions for educators in inner-city neighborhoods. I have also provided consultation services to the Jamaica Red Cross, assisting them in updating their anti-stigma manual. I successfully led teams through change and implemented stabilization plans for a non-profit organization in my previous role. Furthermore, I have served as a lead trainer for a non-profit leadership institute, where I have facilitated the development of the leadership skills management and staff.

With over twelve years of leadership experience, a background in psychology, and my certification as an Executive Maxwell Leadership coach, trainer and speaker, I possess the necessary expertise to assist individuals and companies in breaking free from stagnation, overcoming growth challenges, and implementing sustainable action steps for personal and professional development.

I firmly believe that exceptional leadership is the cornerstone of organizational excellence. I am excited to embark on this growth journey with you and/or your team as we work together to achieve your goals.
