Sheri Joscelyn has been part of the University of Illinois Chicago community since 2008. She started at UIC as an undergraduate student and graduated with her bachelor’s degree in psychology. With an interest in and passion for human relationships and mental health, she spent the next four years working in community-based health research completing surveys and processing data. Sheri has been working in the computer science department since 2018, making purchases, coordinating events, processing reimbursements, and doing much more behind-the-scenes work.
Sheri spent time volunteering with Girl Talk, a program that helps incarcerated girls express themselves through art, acting, movies, music, and discussions while they are in the Juvenile Temporary Detention Center. Learning that every person has their own story and life experiences has provided Sheri with the knowledge to create an understanding and empathetic environment for everyone she meets.
Outside of work, Sheri is passionate about spending time with family and friends, cuddling her dog and two orange cats, reading, doing paint-by-numbers, and binging bad reality TV shows while simultaneously eating sushi or pizza.
