Sheila was born and raised in Pasadena, California. Being exposed to the creative arts and sciences at an early age, this has always guided her on the path to learn something new and be curious of how things work.
She currently lives in Sydney, Australia with her partner, 2 dogs and 3 cats. Sydney is now her home.
She's worn many hats to propel her employer's business forward. Her hats include: customer service rep, a digital designer, a product manager, and all-round glue worker. Her latest role was the Head of Engineering at Zanui.com.au, a pure-play online retail start up for the last four years.
Known as the "handywoman" amongst her friends and colleagues, her peers voted her to win back to back "The Duct Tape Award" and "The MacGyver Award" awards at Zanui for being able to fix just about anything.
Currently, Sheila is working on obtaining a new hat as a self-taught full stack web developer by consuming as much educational content as possible. Jamstack has her much of interest right now.
On her free time, you'll find her sitting under the sun reading a book or playing Shop Heroes on her phone, recreating restaurant meals at home and gardening in the backyard. She enjoys an eclectic range of music and podcasts. Other times, you'll find her in Monster Hunter World smashing and stunning things with her big-ass hammer or flat out on Dirt Rally 2.0 and F1.
