Shari has had a successful career in the entertainment industry for over 25 years. Originally from Montreal, Shari moved to Toronto to attend University and graduated with an Honours BFA in Inter-related arts, where she studied Theatre, Film & Television. While in University, Shari established a theatre troupe for young people. Following the success of her programs, Shari became the choir director for “Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”, starring Donny Osmond. Her ability to pick out the stars in her program led her to running the youth department at “The Talent Group”. After her Talent Group days, Shari opened her own agency in 1999. Wanting a more diverse agency, Shari collaborated with Noelle Jenkinson to rebrand the agency as AMI Artist Management Inc.
Shari has distinguished herself as one of Canada’s most respected agents representing talent in Film, Television and Live Theatre. Her clients work regularly in Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York, and everywhere in between. She is a regular contributor to the media as well as serving as a panelist for both ACTRA & EQUITY. Shari also adjudicates emerging talent at conferences, schools and independent programs across North America.
Shari is a mother to 2 children & 3 dogs. She loves Broadway Musicals, shopping, and all things chocolate.
