Dr. Sherry Walling is a licensed psychologist and the co-host of the ZenFounder podcast. Her life’s work is to help high-performing professionals maximize their vocational potential while also maintaining sanity, life satisfaction, and a sense of personal fulfillment.  She consults regularly with entrepreneurs and founders regarding team, cofounder, and interpersonal conflicts; burnout, depression, anxiety, difficult decisions, existential angst, major transitions, and personal balance.

Sherry is a graduate of UC Davis and Fuller School of Psychology. She has a PhD in clinical psychology and two master’s degrees. In addition, she completed residential fellowships in prevention research at Yale University School of Medicine and trauma research and the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Boston University School of Medicine. She is an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UC San Francisco. She has also held faculty appointments at the California School of Professional Psychology and Fresno Pacific University.   

Married to a serial tech entrepreneur, Sherry has a unique combination of psychological expertise and 17 years of experience in the trenches of the start-up world. She loves bringing these two worlds together on the podcast, in her consulting work, and as a conference speaker.

When she’s not in the consulting room or chatting it up on Skype; Sherry can be found on her paddleboard, building sandcastles on the beach, or dragging her two sons through an art museum in Europe or an artisan market in Thailand.
