    NEW ORLEANS, LA, December 22, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kea Sherman has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

A seasoned attorney backed by years of expertise, Ms. Sherman represents clients in the clean energy and natural resources sector as senior policy counsel for Van Ness Feldman LLP. In this capacity, she expands the firm's presence along the Gulf Coast, offers guidance in policy formulation and strategy, and focuses on concerns related to ports, waterways, maritime interests, infrastructure, and the transition to clean energy. Before obtaining her current role, Ms. Sherman worked for the eponymous Sherman Strategic Affairs, a government relations and public affairs firm representing local, state, and federal clients.

During the early stages of her career, Ms. Sherman gained valuable expertise as the owner of Sherman Law Firm, LLC, and as an associate attorney with Andry Law Firm, Burglass & Tankersley LLC, and Beahm & Green. An expert in her field, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Government from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Subsequently, Ms. Sherman expanded her professional knowledge by completing civil law coursework at Louisiana State University and a JD specializing in healthcare and medical malpractice from the South Texas College of Law. In 2014, she also completed a fellowship in politics and leadership development at Loyola University New Orleans' Institute of Politics.

Driven to remain abreast of changes in the field, Ms. Sherman aligns herself with the Louisiana State Bar Association and the American Association for Justice. In conjunction with her work, she participates with the Krewe of Iris, the first all-female Mardi Gras crew in New Orleans. For her professional achievements, she won the Kingsley House Award for Outstanding Board Membership at Clover and three Super Lawyer Rising Star Awards through Thomson Reuters Corporation. Ms. Sherman has also been named a Louisiana Super Lawyer every year since 2020 and was featured in interviews in 20/20 Magazine and Vanity Fair.

While her career has been filled with highlights, Ms. Sherman takes the most pride in playing a vital role in the class-action lawsuit against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It pertained to the Mississippi River Gulf Coast, which had eroded beyond authorized limits and lacked safety measures. Another standout moment was being a candidate for the Louisiana Legislature in 2019. Although she lost the race, it paved the way for her current role.

Though hard work and dedication have brought her far in her career, Ms. Sherman credits her success to her willingness to take risks and explore new opportunities. She intends to experience her career's continued growth and success in the coming years. Ultimately, Ms. Sherman aims to expand her firm's footprint and foster a harmonious future in which the environment, climate, and humanity thrive.
