Sherron Watkins is the former Vice President of Enron Corporation who alerted then-CEO Ken Lay in August 2001 to accounting irregularities within the company, warning him that Enron 'might implode in a wave of accounting scandals.'  She has testified before Congressional Committees from the House and Senate investigating Enron’s demise.  TIME magazine named Sherron, along with two others, Coleen Rowley of the FBI and Cynthia Cooper of WorldCom, as their 2002 Persons of the Year, for being 'people who did right just by doing their jobs rightly.'  Sherron is also a person of faith, who strives to integrate her personal and professional life.  Can it be done?
