Sherri Van Ravenhorst

FA Research Fund - Communications Director

Sherri Van Ravenhorst

Sherri first fell in love with Oregon when she attended the University of Oregon in pursuit of a Bachelor’s in International Relations and Spanish. After graduation, her wanderlust led her to go explore. She returned to Oregon after spending five years in Brussels, Belgium, where she studied foreign languages and earned her Master’s degree in Communications. She is responsible for all of the Fund’s communications, publications, and conferences, and also works with FA families on their fundraising efforts. "What I love about working at the Fund is that I’m able to contribute to the common good and be proud of my work. I’m excited by the growth of the organization and honored to be a part of expanding its outreach and impact." A wannabee foodie, Sherri is enthusiastic about trying new recipes and sharing meals and great conversation with family and friends. She spends weekends exploring new places in Oregon, making progress on her "to read" list, or working on overambitious DIY projects.
