Sheila grew up in Nashville, TN before moving to Philly for college. She majored in Biological Basis of Behavior as an undergrad at Penn. Sheila then stayed at Penn for the MD/PhD program and completed a rotation in the lab during this time. Her work, which was published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, focused on common and dissociable mechanisms of executive dysfunction across psychiatric disorders in youth. She has now returned to the lab as a research track psychiatry resident. In her free time, she likes baking, listening to podcasts, and watching really bad TV.
Gave up her coffee addiction when starting med school.
