Sheila spent the last nine years living and working in Boulder, Colorado, as a National Director of Leadership Development with the campus ministry of Cru, an interdenominational Christian Missions Organization. Prior to moving to Boulder, she worked with Cru in Springfield, Missouri, at Missouri State University. Sheila is originally from Bolivar, Missouri, and calls it a privilege to be back in her home state and in a community as warm and friendly as Rock Port. When she’s not chasing around a toddler, you can find her working on home decorating projects.
