The Colleague of the Month is chosen from nominations submitted by fellow HSHS Medical Group team members. “Sheila has always stepped up to the plate and with all the recent changes since Covid, she has been asked to fill a lot of shoes, and she makes it look easy,” her nominator said. “She goes above and beyond to show not only how much she enjoys her job but also how much she appreciates her staff. She not only dedicates her time to her staff but also to our patients. She is always making sure that the patients are very well cared for and are given the upmost respect and the best treatment.”

When asked her favorite part of her job, Sheila said, “The daily interaction with staff and patients. With everything that has happened in the past year, I feel fortunate to be able to come to work each day and have all of those human interactions that so many others are missing out on.”
One of Sheila’s guiding principles is that hard work is a sign of respect to those you work with and strengthens the team to achieve their goals.
In her free time, Sheila enjoys spending time with family and friends, gardening, cooking and crafts.
