Sheleen’s background is unique in the the CIO world. She has 20 years of Marketing and Operations experience in health care and insurance.

Over the last 15 years she has developed a set of IT management principles and strategies that support achieving business goals and creating a viable IT culture for IT professionals to thrive in. Sheleen leverages her experience and energy to share her solutions with IT managers and their staffs through writing, speaking consulting, coaching and mentoring.
