Cheryl Cooney

Director of Operations

For the past seven years, Cheryl Cooney has led the operations, logistics and organizational management for FTI. Previously, she spent 20 years helping to manage law firms in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Cheryl spends much of her spare time writing for children and is patiently waiting to catch the eyes of an agent or editor. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators and is very active with a fun and creative critique group. Cheryl has also pursued a variety of interests, one of which was performing as a magician’s assistant. She insists she knows all of the secrets, but dares not tell. She is an avid reader and can often be found with her nose in a book, or listening to her daughter read.

Cheryl is a native Long Islander and has since settled down in Maryland, just outside of Annapolis, and is happily raising her daughter as a single mom.
