She has worked with more than 25 Fortune 100 companies as an executive coach, change agent, communicator, and facilitator. These companies represent a broad range of industries, including life sciences, healthcare, manufacturing, energy and technology. As Founder of Change Agency, Inc., Sheila grounds her consulting and coaching work in the practices and principles of leadership development, systems change, design thinking, and mindfulness.

Sheila started her career as an Account Director at DraftFCB (formerly Foote, Cone & Belding) and Leo Burnett. For over a decade, she worked with brand management teams to conduct in-depth business analyses, identify new market opportunities, focus on the strongest ideas, and help produce them into breakthrough advertising and marketing programs.

In 2005, Sheila joined EY/Capgemini’s Accelerated Solutions Environment (ASE) and became a master facilitator in applied design thinking. After five years of leading the Midwest ASE practice, she moved to KPMG to help launch their North American Innovation and Acceleration Center. She has delivered hundreds of sessions inspiring more than 5,000 leaders, from managers to C-suite executives, to work more collaboratively and strategically.

Sheila earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, and a Master of Science in Organization Development, with a concentration in organizational creativity, from Loyola University Chicago. She is a Certified Integral Coach. For more than two decades, she has practiced meditation, embodied leadership, and authentic movement to help produce deep and lasting change for herself and her clients.
