Cheryl Wessels joined EcoR1 Capital, LLC in April of 2021. With over three decades of experience across a diverse array of industries, her carefully honed skills enable her to support the administrative needs of the Leadership Team, primarily the Partners of the firm and the Director of Partner Relations. Her responsibilities encompass scheduling, assisting with special projects and events, investor relations, and other activities to complement the seamless operations of her colleagues and the firm. A native Texan, Cheryl resides in Pilot Point, Texas, along with her daughter and canine companion, Isabelle. Fun fact — Cheryl has known Catherine McWilliams (the Director of Partner Relations) since she was four years old.
Isabelle, +/- 8 yr old border collie/australian shepherd rescue, loves long walks, playing fetch, chasing squirrels, is an exceptional beggar of snacks & treats and melts the heart of her humans with just a look from her big brown eyes! She's happiest with her humans but, in her free time, loves to spend time digging into just the right spot under her favorite tree for a nice nap in freshly excavated dirt. Aaah ... it's a good life.
