Spitfire Strategies

Sherice Perry

Vice President

Sherice Perry brings passion and commitment to helping her Spitfire clients. She thrives on taking a complex issue such as health care, breaking it down and connecting reporters, individuals and families with the information and empowering them to make decisions that benefit their communities.

Before coming to Spitfire, Sherice served as executive director of The Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative (BJKLI). Founded by Billie Jean King in 2014, BJKLI works to create a movement where diversity and inclusivity are valued and promoted in the workplace.

Prior to joining BJKLI, Sherice was the director of specialty and broadcast media in the secretary’s Public Affairs Office at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), where she focused on public health and the Affordable Care Act. In that capacity, Sherice led the Public Affairs Office’s specialty media outreach, managed the secretary’s broadcast media portfolio, and staffed Secretary Sebelius and Secretary Burwell for in-town and on-the-road events. Sherice also planned and executed events to educate the media and public about the Affordable Care Act and public health issues affecting minority populations, in collaboration with the White House and other government agencies.
