Honoring Nancy Sherman, Former Harmonium CEO

On August 27, 2021 Nancy Sherman (Ajemian) passed away in Oakland, CA surrounded by her loving family.

During the 80s and 90s Nancy was the Executive Director of Harmonium, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to advancing the well-being of children, youth and their families. During Nancy’s almost 30-year tenure, Harmonium grew from a small community nonprofit to one of the largest social service providers in San Diego County, serving thousands of children, teens, and their families.

Nancy Sherman was a dedicated social worker, advocate, and leader.  Nancy led a life full of creativity and learning.  She was a passionate community leader in the many cities she lived over the course of her life.  Nancy sought to create community through food, arts and culture via social work, non-profits, neighborhood projects, and permaculture. 

Since 2016, Nancy was actively involved in developing the Soja Community nonprofit in Oakland, CA.  Soja Community’s mission is to create a culture of health that enables persons of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels to lead healthier lives now and for future generations.

A memorial celebration of her life is planned for a later date. If you are interested in attending this event, please send an email to her son Peter Ajemian at info@sojamindbody.com
