Sharayah WinklerDirector of Donor Engagement & Board Liaison
Sharayah Winkler is an experienced development professional who believes conservation is essential to our communities’ health and well-being.
Sharayah is committed to growing The Land Trust’s family of friends, supporters, and advocates and is always eager to help get others involved in the many aspects of our work. As a Williamson County resident and representative of The Land Trust, Sharayah is a member of the Harlinsdale Committee, a subcommittee ran by Friends of Franklin Parks to enhance the park experience at Harlinsdale Farm.
Sharayah has a Bachelor of Commerce from Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. She went on to work for global fashion retailer Cotton On Group, having spent most of her time managing their internal audit program. Being raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies, Sharayah’s deep appreciation and care for nature grew even more during her time in Australia.
In her spare time, Sharayah is an avid sports fan, coffee enthusiast, and serves in her local church. She enjoys traveling and experiencing new cultures, nature, and history.
What we do at The Land Trust today lasts forever – and there’s not much else in life we do that you can say lasts forever. To partner with those who have a passion for protecting what makes our home unique – hearing their stories and helping them fulfill their own goals in giving back – is both exciting and humbling.
