Sheree Williams

2020 Fuel Your Dreams Award Winner - CA

Sheree Williams is the owner of V. Sheree Creative Enterprises (VSCE), a boutique consulting agency located in Oakland, California that focuses on public relations and marketing as well as diversity and inclusion in the food, drink and travel arenas.

Since 2009, Sheree has published the first global culinary publication, Cuisine Noir Magazine, that connects the African diaspora through food, drink and travel.  Through her leadership, the magazine has pioneered important conversations about Black chefs, tastemakers, winemakers, travel influencers and more.

Sheree is a sofi ™ Awards judge for the Specialty Food Association, a wine consultant with FLOW Wine Group, was recognized by Dine Diaspora as one of 31 Women in Food to know during Women’s History Month and in 2020 joined 26 Black and White women coming together for the groundbreaking #sharethemicfoodandbev campaign to amplify the voices of Black women in the food and beverage industries on Instagram.

When she is not writing about the latest food trend or bottle of wine, you can find the Illinois native trying new recipes, exploring her backyard, sipping on her favorite glass of bubbles or relaxing on the beach.

"I am beyond excited to be a recipient of the Fuel Your Dreams Scholarship Award.  This scholarship will not only assist me with advancing my knowledge and practical use in the wine spaces I currently engage in, but it will also fuel my work that continues to lead important conversations about diversity and inclusion in the wine industry."
