Sheila 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 D.C. as a lobbyist and policy maker, but a post-college stint in Jackson Hole, Wyoming turned her into a mountain loving westerner. Sheila enjoys vacations with her family in Maine and upstate New York during the summer. She lives in the 9th and 9th area of Salt Lake City with her husband Andy and three children. They love skiing, biking, hiking and being part of their dynamic neighborhood.
