At Kroll, Sheryl led multi-million-dollar client engagements involving compliance consulting and investigative matters. After Kroll, Ms. Wood became a Partner at two law firms, where she served in several leadership positions and started a Women General Counsel Brownbag Luncheon series, before starting her own law firm in 2009.
