Degrees and Certifications:
Sheila joined the Equity team in the Fall of 2013. A licensed attorney, she spent over 20 years litigating discrimination and harassment cases in the Minneapolis area. She also has extensive experience as a mediator of employment disputes. During that time, she authored a children's book on differences, which launched her passion for helping children discover the value in our diversity. Her experiences led her to wanting to find a proactive way to bring children of different cultures together early on, to avoid a future of prejudice. She is available to work with students and family on issues of diversity and equity in the classroom environment.
