Sherrie Wilson Hinshaw
President/CEO

After ten years in construction, Sherrie moved into social services out of a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable Alaskans. As a curious problem-solver, Sherrie’s journey prior to leading VOA Alaska included exploring and understand the challenges Alaskan individuals and communities face from multiple perspectives. As a direct service provider, Sherrie has experience in residential psychiatric treatment for young children, mental health services for adults, and family self-sufficiency programs for low-income households. From a larger, systemic perspective, Sherrie has spent time digging into the health of communities and statewide housing and homeless service systems. Now at VOA, she is inspired by the many opportunities we have to make an impact in the lives of youth who are in pain, to help communities become healthy, and provide housing for youth and families. She has a Bachelor in Business Administration in Management & Marketing, Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Master of Science in Clinical Psychology. As a lifelong Alaskan, wife to Dave, and mother to Pepper and Fletcher, Sherrie is driven each day to strengthen the community and state she has always been honored to call “home.”
