Sheri Baker — Chair
Sheri Baker started with the FAA in 1990. After having children, she left the Agency to have more of a routine with her family. During that time she worked for Raytheon as a contract ATC Instructor for a year, as a Site Supervisor at Boston TRACON for two years, then as the Lead Site Supervisor for the Central Service Area EnRoute facilities.
Once her children were a bit older, she was fortunate to get rehired by the FAA. Then in 2014, she was hired as an Operations Supervisor at Boston Center. In 2016 she was selected to be a part of the ATO-SPP program. This program was a great way to gain invaluable experience to prepare for a second-level management position. Once she finished the program, she became the Boston District ETR. She was able to learn a lot about the LR process doing this. From there She was detailed to QC Manager and then Training Manager.
She and her husband always knew that when their kids were old enough, they needed to live where it’s warm and sunny every day. To make this happen she bid on a job at Jacksonville Center. She is now an OM here at ZJX and loves every minute of it. The facility is amazing, the workforce is great, and she is very lucky to have a great management team that helps her learn every day.
She feels that she has reached a point in her career to give back. She would like to mentor others and encourage our future generation to strive to be their best as well as to do it happily, every single day
