Prior to joining Cushman & Wakefield, Sheila worked for Newmark Grubb Knight Frank as a Managing Director. Previous to that, Sheila was vice president of Prudential Commercial Real Estate in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she was also one of the top producers.
Sheila began her real estate career after deciding to apply her business expertise on a local level rather than in foreign countries.

From 1988, prior to graduating from college, until 1999, Sheila was employed by Honeywell/Bull, later Bull HN, where she worked in software development and contributed to some of the company’s most significant technology advancements as an individual contributor, project manager and finally director of engineering in the computer storage division in Arizona.
Sheila graduated cum laude in 1988 from Grand Canyon University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science.
Her team has been involved with some of the most complex and competitive transactions in the recent markets, including the disposition of the First National Bank Portfolio for Sorenson Group Management, placement of IRIS USA’s new US Headquarters in Surprise and multiple site selections for Skilled Nursing Facilities for OrthoArizona.
