Sheila started her career at the University of Michigan in the Program in Linguistics in 1988. Moving to the Medical School in 1994, she quickly found that central campus was the place to be and began working in the Department of History in 1996 working with graduate students. Now in her current position as Curriculum Coordinator since 2006, she finds working mainly with faculty just as enjoyable.
