Virginia Ann Sharber
After 25 years as a commercial real-estate lawyer, Sharber didn't hear a voice about a job change. She got a phone call. She was asked to step in as Interim Director at the Hunter Museum of American Art.
"I asked, 'Why me?' I had no art history background, no management experience. But my community involvement was relevant to them," she said.
Sharber learned from her parents at a young age to be involved in the community in a greater aspect than what she was paid to do. "I loved my work, but my work in the community really fed my soul."
She said her skills as a commercial real-estate lawyer have been transferrable to this new position. She has to be organized, exercise good time management, work on contracting and be an avid listener. Communications and partnership building skills were gathered from experiences in community endeavors and have been the most helpful in her transition.
...
Sharber: Taking on anything new, you have to be able to pull from previous experiences and have the courage to listen to what people see in you.
...
Sharber: I still have stress because I'm still learning and adapting.
...
Sharber: Build connections. Get involved in your community.
