A nationally recognized presenter and business thought leader, Scheer has worked for Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Karmanos Cancer Institute and Trinity Health. Most recently, Scheer served as president of the luxury senior living development portfolio, Blossom Collection by Moceri, in Oakland Township.
