Our Team Leadership
Sharlene Hawkes, President of Remember My Service
Sharlene Hawkes  |  President, RMS Productions
RMS President, Sharlene Hawkes founded the Remember My Service division of StoryRock, Inc., which today has become a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company.  She worked closely with the first RMS project at the 96th RRC, guiding the program’s mission and strategy through its development stages. Though relatively new to the Military market, Sharlene is no stranger to the power of Communication tools—she was one of the first women to work as a sportscaster for ESPN (1988-2004), covering such world-class events as World Cup Soccer, the French Open, World Cup Skiing, the Kentucky Derb—and Big 10 Football.  She holds a BS in Communication from BYU, and a Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Communication from the University of Utah, and how could she live in Utah without being a big fan of Utah’s famous ski country?  Sharlene and her family (4 children) enjoy skiing and biking in the world-class Wasatch Range.
