Robin Sherman, Director, IT Project Management Office
Robin’s early career path included journalism, counseling, and teaching until the world of technology captured her interest. Her work in the field of information technology started at UMaine in 1998 when she was hired to work with ASAP Media Services. That led to future positions at UMaine as a Faculty Development Specialist, IT Help Desk Coordinator, and FirstClass Email Administrator. In 2004, Robin started work with the UMS System Office and has served in a variety of positions including ERP Trainer, Manager of Training, Student Financials Business Analyst, and these days she’s very excited to be working in the newly established IT Project Management Office.
