Catherine Sheridan-Walsh

Business Development Manager

I am your Business Development Manager – I work directly with Valerie. I coordinate calendars, I help create our client events, help balance Valerie’s sanity, and keep the office running as smoothly as possible.

I graduated from Bryman School for Dental Assisting in 1986.  My dental assisting career took a turn in 1995 when I started working at LaSalle Bank in their bond department.  As I advanced through the department, I became familiar with the trade desk and ended up as a junior assistant for six corporate bond salespeople.  Life took another turn after the birth of our second daughter, then first and second sons.  I went to work at a painting company where I continued honing my skills with customer service before I came to work with the Emerge team.

When I am not at the Emerge office, you will find me volunteering on the board of my children’s high school band boosters, gardening or attending live music concerts at Ravinia in the summer!
