Chief Financial Solutions Officer

Sherrell T Martin  Sherrell is the Managing Member of Empower 2 Thrive, LLC, a wholly owned women business which is the parent company to Nitram Financial Solutions.  She is an award winning financial management consultant, accountant, speaker and trainer.  Sherrell brings to the table 20 years of experience in accounting and financial management.

After earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Bowie State University, she went directly into public accounting.  Working in public accounting gave her the experience she wanted in all facets of accounting.  She became knowledgeable in not only accounting but also tax, audit and accounting software solutions.  Using her keen eye and attention for detail coupled with her ability to quickly see through the numbers, she has been able to not only help her clients find money leaks in their business, but also increase profitability and detect fraud.

After twelve years, she decided to try something different so she went to Corporate America where she obtained corporate finance experience as well as budgeting and forecasting.  In the roles she held, she managed operating and construction budgets in excess of $189M and ensuring that financial goals were met.

She loves her family and friends; laughter and fun.  She loves helping others succeed financially, while doing something they absolutely enjoy doing.  And wealth.  “I believe that we should all experience an abundance of wealth. Wealth that allows us to live the comfortable and joyful life we desire.  Wealth that allows you to leave a legacy for years to come.  That is who I am at the core.”
