Chief Marketing Officer
Sheila Rappazzo Yorkin
Sheila Rappazzo Yorkin hails from the East Coast, having grown up in Poughkeepsie, New York, and Boca Raton, Florida. Her studies in political science at the University of Richmond prepared her for an intended career in Washington, DC, as a lobbyist and policy maker. But a post-college stint in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, turned her into a mountain-loving westerner. After moving to Utah, Sheila spent the first part of her career with Salt Lake City Corporation in communication and policy roles. She was also the managing director of the Gallivan Utah Center during the 2002 Olympics. Sheila eventually ended up at Westminster College, where she loves impersonating Anna Wintour with her endless stylish outfits and diva attitude—just ask her assistant. Though she is stylish, she’s much less diva and more an enthusiastic and caring leader. Sheila is passionate about the inclusivity of women in education, business, and the community and has served on several boards, including: Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum, Utah River’s Council, KRCL Advisory Committee, and Salt Lake Acting Company. Sheila is also a member of the Utah Women’s Forum. She loves working on the Review and sharing everything Westminster has to offer. When she’s not working, Sheila enjoys vacations with her family in Maine and upstate New York during the summer and skiing, biking, and hiking with her husband, Andy, and three children.
