Howdy, I am Shernell Hendrickson. I was born in St.Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands, lived in St.Kitts, and moved to Houston in second grade. I graduated from Texas A&M University, in May of 2012, with a Business Management degree, WHOOP! I am currently employed with Virtus Partners, LLC as a Global Asset Anaylst in the financial services industry. Prior to Virtus, I was predominately employed in the mortgage industry as a Loan Processor and a Compliance Analyst. I joined HAULYP because I heard and then saw an organization who was passionate about serving and informing our community, the community who looks like me. HAULYP, has kept me informed about politics through meeting the candidates on personal levels and kept me serving those who are in need in the community in a more consistent manner.
I have been an active member of HAULYP for about 2 years and some odd months. I became an official member in March 2014. I am a member of the lovely Community Outreach Committee, as serving is where my heart is. I have participated in the past four Young Professional Universities by helping round up the students (registration) by reaching out to past contacts via email and phone, being a transition leader, and a workshop lead. I have volunteered with Keeping Houston Beautiful at TSU, Breakfast with Santa Clause, Warm for the Holidays, and the Bread of Life Saturday Projects at St. Johns.
