Subsequently, from 2013 to 2014, she served as Special Assistant to the President and White House Coordinator for Defense Policy, Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction, and Arms Control.

In the Clinton Administration, Sherwood-Randall served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia.During this period, she led the effort to denuclearize three former Soviet states, for which she was awarded the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service and the Nunn-Lugar Trailblazer Award. Early in her career, she was Senator Joe Biden’s chief advisor on foreign and defense policy. She has also worked at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Stanford University, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Brookings Institution.

Born and raised in California, Sherwood-Randall attended college at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude.
