CheRonn began her career with the criminal justice system at Corcoran State Prison as a substance abuse case manager. In 2006, she returned to the Bay Area where she continued her work with the San Francisco Sheriff's Department Programs Division, first as a substance abuse counselor for in-custody women, and later as a case manager in the Survivor's Restoration Program. For the last eight years, CheRonn has been the Operations Coordinator for the groundbreaking Five Keys Charter School. Five Keys, established as the first charter school in the nation inside of a county jail, has redefined the way people think about the role of education in restoring communities. While with Five Keys, CheRonn oversaw the daily operations of the school in both San Francisco and Solano Counties, and this is how she came to be introduced to the work of IPP. A valued member of the IPP family for quite some time now, CheRonn is currently a VOEG facilitator at the West Contra Costa County jail. Many of you likely remember CheRonn's riveting Survivor Speech at last year's Beyond the Bars Dinner. As a survivor of sexual assault, CheRonn is a tireless advocate of personal healing and inspires trauma-healing throughout the community.
