She is passionate about shifting away from a car-dependant culture and believes that empowering communities is one of the best ways to activate this change and all change! These are reasons why Sheila is excited to be on the SR2S team, helping create more safe and accessible communities.

In their free time, Sheila likes reading and watching sci-fi and fantasy media, cuddling with their cat, laughing at memes, and spending time with loved ones (preferably outdoors).
