Sharon Whipple
Director of First Impressions

Sharon has enjoyed her role as the Director of First Impressions for Hungerford Nichols and has embraced the growth and change occurring in the Firm.

Her prior administrative experience includes serving in the Dean’s Office at Central Michigan University in the College of Communication and Fine Arts as an administrative professional. In this capacity she not only discovered her love of theater and music, but became involved in the planning of Central Michigan’s first Michigan Story Festival, bringing the art of story-telling to the mid-Michigan area. Coming back to Grand Rapids, Sharon has rekindled many relationships and has found her niche at Hungerford Nichols as “The Director of First Impressions.” Creating a warm and inviting environment for clients and visitors, Sharon’s friendly and helpful nature appears to be a natural part of her personality. Sharon serves as a liaison between clients and staff, helping clients feel personally acknowledged and appreciated. In her spare time, Sharon enjoys theater, golfing, music, cooking, and enjoying Michigan craft beer. Sharon enjoys serving on Hungerford’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion team and is active in planning the many firm events enjoyed by all staff.

“Investing in exemplary customer service is its own form of networking in disguise.”
