Sharon Rodriguez lives in the City of Chicopee. As a busy mom of two girls, Sharon’s main goal is to make sure her girls know they have a voice. Her main professional goal is to educate women, especially the ones that look like her, to know that their voices do matter, and that they are truly stronger than what they believe.
In Sharon’s previous role as a Case Specialist, for the Massachusetts Probation Services, Sharon was tapped on the shoulder to be the Cultural Proﬁciency Champion for the District Court in Springﬁeld, a role which she eagerly accepted. Sharon buckled down, championed the cause of her division, and was at the forefront of how the culture emerged across the Springﬁeld Courthouse.
Sharon cares very deeply about issues within the Domestic Violence Community, of which she is a survivor, and so is her mother. Helping women ﬁnd their voice and empowering them to be stronger, is what Sharon enjoys doing. Sharon grew up in Holyoke, MA and the city shaped her for the future. She also serves as a Trustee for the Paulo Freire Social Justice Charter School.
Sharon is a double graduate of Bay Path University, where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, with a minor in Psychology, and a Master’s in Cybersecurity Management with a concentration in Digital Forensics. Sharon currently works for Interval House CT., a Non-Proﬁt Domestic Violence agency, where she is a Family Violence Victim Advocate (FVVA).
