Sheila Dion is the founder of Erin’s Angels. She is passionate about spreading awareness about food insecurity. Her professional career includes marketing for various companies in CNY and she is currently in the 2020 class for Leadership Oswego County. She was inspired to start a charity in Phoenix after experiencing firsthand the hunger issues when she worked for the district. She believes that when people come together to share their time, talent and resources they can build stronger communities, so she started a networking for good event that meets four times a year. Oswego Women Lead’s mission is to give back to the community. Sheila believes that networking is not just about what we can do for ourselves, but about how we are able to better the lives of the people around us. She is an avid volunteer in her community, serving on various boards and is the Central New York Business Journal's 2019 Non-Profit Award winner for Board Leadership. She lives in Phoenix with her husband Matt and her three sons, Tom, Mike and John.

Jackie Flint has recently joined the Board of Directors for Erin's Angel's. She works full time for The Hartford Insurance Group as the Manager of Claim Practices and recently celebrated her 30th Anniversary.
Jackie grew up in San Francisco, California before planting roots in Central New York in 1986. She moved to Hannibal, NY after marrying her husband Jamie in 2014 where they are raising their daughters Vanessa, Megan and Hunter and son Luke. Prior to this she lived in Phoenix for more than 20 years. Jackie has been actively involved in her children’s activities including The Boy Scouts of America, where her son Luke earned the rank of Eagle Scout, as well as coaching for the Phoenix Pop Warner Cheerleading program for several years.
Erin’s Angels means a lot to Jackie personally. Food insecurity has touched her life both as a child who experienced lean times growing up as well as the precious time she was able to spend with Erin. While there is nothing we can do to change the past, we can do something to help today and in the future. For these reasons, she looks forward to working in this role with an organization committed to filling this much needed gap in our community.
