Meet Our Team

 Executive Director - Sheryl Hamilton


Sheryl Hamilton is the new Executive Director of Racine County Opportunity Center.  She is committed to the mission of RCOC and to increase RCOC's visibility in the community.  RCOC is an excellent facility with three dynamic programs to offer the Racine County area.


Sheryl has been with RCOC since 2000 as the Supervisor and speech/feeding therapist of the Birth-to-Three program, and recently as the administrator of The Nestling Place.  Since graduation from UW-Whitewater graduate school, Sheryl has focused her skills with the pediatric population.  Her passion has been with more medically-fragile infants/toddlers.  When she became the administrator of The Nestling Place, her focus, along with the Director, was to create an environment for both "typically" developing children and children with special needs.


Board of Directors

 Our board of directors assists in providing leadership and guidance to support and guide the center. The members of our board include many leaders within the community that share common interests. They include business leaders, health care professionals, educators, and consumer advocates.
