Cheryl Villalobos

CHAIR&

STERLINGFEST CO-CHAIR

Cheryl Villalobos moved to Sterling Park in 1993 with her husband, Matt, to raise their family. While her six children attended Park View High School, she jumped in to help wherever was needed- feeding the football team, the drama club, girls soccer, the volleyball team, girls lacrosse, cross country, and the track team. She worked on Project Graduation for 12 years, leading it for three of those years. She organized the bi-annual craft & vendor shows and still runs them in March and November. As each of her kids headed off to college, she wanted to get more involved in the Sterling community. She founded the Sterling Park Neighborhood Exchange (SPNE) Facebook group to help keep neighbors informed of local happenings. Through the SPNE, she met Aaron Gilman, who was actively volunteering to make Sterling better. He invited her to join the Sterling Foundation Board and later encouraged her to manage the vendors for Sterling Fest. She is a receptionist/assistant at the Glass Door Salon and attends Chantilly Bible Church. 2019 will be Cheryl’s fifth year on the Sterling Foundation Board of Directors but her second year as chairman of the board. She loves the collaboration of her 15 board members to make the community a better place for all.

Sterling Foundation Secretary Nancy Gallagher

Nancy Gallagher

SECRETARY,

TREASURER & STERLINGFEST CO-CHAIR

Nancy has lived in Sterling Park for 33 years and has lived in four different areas of the park: W Beech, E Iberia, Mycroft Ct and E Amhurst. She likes to say that she lives in the least expensive area in the richest county in America. She has four children, ages 33 to 24, who all graduated from Park View. Two of them live in the Sterling area and two live elsewhere (Atlanta and NYC.) She also has two wonderful grandchildren, ages 7 and 8. Thankfully they live in the area too.
After college, Nancy worked at channel 9 news for 4 years. She then spent 9 years at home, birthing and nursing babies. Later she worked for a private student loan company (Servus Financial), Nextel, and then in the last 13 years she has worked in the financial advisory field. Her advisory practice focuses on helping others become their best financial selves, and convincing Millennials to contribute as much as possible to their 401ks, or at least get started.
Nancy attended one Sterling Foundation meeting to support her good friend, Cheryl Villalobos, at her first meeting as president. Before she knew it, Cheryl snagged her into becoming Secretary when the position became vacant. Nancy has enjoyed being on the board and working with her fellow board members at various Foundation events. She especially liked organizing the wine and beer garden at Sterlingfest 2018.
After growing up on a small farm in PA, Nancy loves getting her hands dirty in her backyard garden. She currently is in her third year of growing hops, as well as several different types of vegetables. She is on the board of the New Ag School, a non-profit dedicated to growing farmers through agricultural industry mentorships. The New Ag School is located in Leesburg.
Nancy’s interests include gardening, fixing up her house, video production, and online dating. She has recently challenged herself to do two hikes a month in preparation of hiking Old Rag in September or October. (Knees don’t fail me now!) She attends Christian Fellowship Church in Ashburn, where she is part of the video team. Nancy’s humor includes copious amounts of keen observation and good natured sarcasm. She loves to laugh.
