Welcome from Sharon Shipley
I am originally from Ripley, TN, but moved to Memphis to attend Christian Brothers University. After graduation, my husband, Josh, and I lived in Central Gardens on Vance Avenue for ten years. In 2011, we took a brief five-year detour to East Memphis. We moved back to Central Gardens in December 2016. We have two children, Sam and Norah, and two fur-children, Eggo and Koufax. I work at First Horizon Bank as a Senior Vice President in the Corporate Banking Group.
I joined the CGA Board in June 2017 as a way to get more involved in the neighborhood and to work with the Safety Committee. I was surprised to be asked to be Vice President last year because I haven’t been a board member for long; however, I do have a love for and vested interest in Central Gardens and Midtown. I love our old homes and beautiful neighborhood. I adore so many of the people who live in Central Gardens and my husband and I have chosen this as the place to raise our two children. Our friends are here, our church is here, and our children’s school is here. I am excited to serve Central Gardens Association as President in 2020/2021.
