Sheila and her family have been residents of Burbank since 1971, when her parents purchased their first home just a few blocks from the equestrian center. For nearly 20 years, she has been a pediatric nurse at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She is currently an integral part of the Fetal Maternal Center, where she has worked as a Registered Nurse for the past 14 years, assisting pregnant mothers and their families whose unborn babies have abnormalities. Apart from the actual clinical care provided, she believes that the single most important role she fulfills is to advocate for those in a frightening and vulnerable time in their lives.
