Sharayah Winkler

Director of Member Relations

[sha-RAY-ah] Sharayah joined The Land Trust for Tennessee in March 2015. As Director of Member Relations, she now leads multiple fundraising efforts and plays an integral role in growing our relationships with donors, grantors and other partners.

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.

Since coming to The Land Trust, Sharayah endeavors to build The Land Trust family. She works with the conservation, communications, and outreach teams to share the importance of conservation and how anyone can partner with The Land Trust.

In her spare time, Sharayah is an avid sports fan and serves in her local church. She eagerly awaits her next opportunity to travel to experience cultures, nature, history, and all things coffee.

What do I love most about my job?
What we do at The Land Trust today is forever – conserving land today will make a positive impact for the people of Tennessee and its visitors for years to come. 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.
