Getting To Know Us
pro•duhk•tiv is a small business with the purpose of making a difference for our families, customers, and communities.
Who Are We?
As the CEO of pro•duhk•tiv, Sheri is on a mission to create and provide a variety of fun, focused, effective and engaging learning solutions. With a master’s degree in Environmental Science, it makes sense that she’s spent the last 20 years creating and delivering training for adults, right? This discord is what plunged her into the field of instructional design and encouraged her study into learning theories, retention, adult learning, and the human brain. Sheri believes that “knowing is not enough, application is key.” Outside of work, Sheri is a life-long learner, desk plant-killer, lover of sweets (it’s possible you’ll find her eating frosting with a spoon), and an active tennis player.
president & Chief Innovation officer
Steve is the President and Chief Innovation Officer at pro•duhk•tiv and works closely with customers on a day-to-day basis. He is a 30+ year channel veteran, with nearly half that time being a Technology Strategist at Microsoft. His passion is finding innovative ways to help partners and customers understand how Microsoft 365 enables working securely. If you’ve ever been on a video call with Steve, you know based on his background wall that he has a passion for guitars. Having played for nearly a half-century, he sometimes dreams of being back on stage.
Vice president of experiences
