She is passionate about helping to create a brighter future for youth in the child welfare system and their families. Sheila is guided by Henry David Thoreau's words: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

Always up for an adventure, Sheila and her husband, David, love traveling and exploring new places. They also enjoy local beach days with their three rescue Boxers: Nati, Otis, and Guinness, who are the most spoiled pups!
