Sheryl Jedlinski

After Sheryl Jedlinski’s graduation from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, she reported for Illinois’ third largest daily newspaper, the “Daily Herald” before carving out a successful public relations career. It took a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis to reveal her true mission: advocating for PD patients. Her humorous insights have prompted a second career as a conference presenter.

Accompanying her on this journey are husband Tony, two sons and “the most adorable granddaughter on the planet.”
