Meet Sherrie 

New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community


My name is Sherrie Winfield and I have been a Northville resident for the past 16 years.  The primary reason my family moved to Northville was the high ranking of the Northville Public Schools. 


In 1990 and 1992, I received my Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) and my Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in Human Resources, respectively from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.

I am the proud mother of Rachel and Victoria Winfield.   My daughters have attended NPS schools since the first grade at Silver Springs to Meads Mills, and onto the High School.  I have actively supported my daughters in a myriad of activities over the years. 

Rachel graduated from NHS in 2018.  While attending NPS, she was active in Lacrosse, Basketball, and was Captain of the NHS Rowing Team.   She also founded her own student organization, Students Promoting Justice and Equality.  She is a Junior at Michigan State University.  Victoria is a rising NHS Sophomore and has been an active member of Student Congress, Basketball, Band and Girl Scouts throughout her school years.

I am a Senior Human Resources Manager at Ford Motor Company.  I was recruited out of graduate school 28 years ago.  While employed at Ford, I’ve gained invaluable experience that especially qualifies me for the Northville Public School Board especially in these unique times:
