“I didn’t know her before this bill, but I can say empathically, Sharon Pearce is one mom that has positively changed people’s lives all over North Carolina.  Sharon Pearce has shown us all that she is a tremendous advocate for all families with diabetes.  Because of Sharon Pearce, legislation passed that is a model for the whole country.  Sharon is one of the hardest working people I know. Sharon knew how to persuasively articulate a position and influence decision makers in Raleigh.  She had the skills to put all the stakeholders together to get the results families so desperately needed. Sharon Pearce is a proven leader, and families all over North Carolina are grateful.”

President American Association of Nurse Anesthetists


I met Sharon Pearce in 1998 when she convinced Leggett & Platt to become the corporate lead in the “Walk to Cure Diabetes.”  She was instrumental as chair of the High Point “Walk” which raised over $500,000 in two years.

Since that time I’ve watched Sharon’s continued growth and success.  She served as president of the NC Association of Nurse Anesthetists 2001-2002, and rose to the presidency of the 49,000-member American Association of Nurse Anesthetists 2014-2015, while at the same time holding a full-time job and raising three children.  She has over thirty-one years’ experience with issues surrounding the healthcare system.   This is evidence that Sharon truly knows how to get things done!

She is an honest, hard-working,  clear-thinking and persuasive leader.  All those characteristics would serve Davidson County well.  In my opinion, she will be the most effective leader we could send to Raleigh.
