Sherry C. Vining joined Tyler & Company in 1998 as a Research Associate and was promoted to Senior Research Associate in 2001. Vining came to the firm from South Fulton Medical Center in Atlanta where she worked as a Senior Recruiter. Before that, she worked as a Coordinator of Recruitment/Retention and Staffing at Columbia/HCA North Monroe Hospital in Monroe, La., for 10 years.

Based in the firm’s Atlanta office, Vining also serves as the healthcare compensation resource for all of Tyler & Company.

Vining grew up in Louisiana and attended the University of Louisiana at Monroe, formerly Northeast Louisiana University. She is married and has two grown daughters. Making life better for her family is how Vining spends her time outside work. She says that watching her children become adults and have continued success in their careers and lives gives her great satisfaction. And, she credits her husband, Kelly, for his devotion and support.

Says Nelson A. Mann, Senior VP, who works closely with Vining, "Sherry does most of the heavy lifting — sourcing and screening of candidates. She’s very detail oriented, which is a challenge of mine, so she’s Sherry who makes me look good to clients!"

After 14 years at Tyler & Company, Vining confesses, "The best part of my job is finding the perfect match for the organization, hiring executive and the successful candidate. When I receive positive follow-up comments on CQIs [quality surveys] completed by clients and candidates, I know I helped make a difference in their lives. It sounds cliché, but it is true, this position allows me the opportunity to meet and work with individuals who are the experts in the industry. I learn from each and every one of them."

"Make it happen" is Vining’s favorite quote. She credits her father with imbuing her with this, one of his basic philosophies. Simply stated, this means that you must work hard to achieve goals; anything worthwhile doesn’t come easy.

Those who know Vining — clients, candidates and colleagues — can attest that she lives by this credo when doing her work for Tyler & Company!
