Sherry Stotler, chief nursing officer, Valleywise Health

BACKGROUND: Stotler joined Valleywise Health in 2005 from Barix Clinic of Arizona in Scottsdale, where she served as vice president of Clinical Services. Stotler earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Arizona State University in Tempe and her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Phoenix. She has over 25 years of experience in nursing leadership.

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I think when I went back to school and got my master’s degree. It just seems like not a big thing, but I think when I did that, I had small kids and I went back to school. There are so many things we push ourselves to do, but I think continuing that education was something that I always felt was positive and something that, at the time, not many people were doing. It just wasn’t where people were going. And then I think that helps me now always strive to continue to learn and grow.”  

SURPRISING FACT: “When I was born, I weighed 10 pounds and had a full head of hair, but my mother was only five feet tall. She always said that when I came out, it was as if I was already ready for school. Because she’s like, ‘Oh, I thought I was getting a baby and I already got an adult.’ So sometimes when you look at people, sometimes people say, I’m a preemie, and then I’m like, ‘No, I was not a preemie.’”
