For over 30 years Sheila has played coast to coast with ensembles ranging from regional symphonies to rock groups.

Fun Facts:
Favorite Wichita Falls restaurant: When in Wichita Falls, I enjoy dining at the Pioneer Restaurant or grabbing a pizza from Marco’s.
Describe your family and/or pets: A rescued Pitbull and two cats
Favorite hobby: In my free time, I enjoy hanging around my home on Lake Ray Hubbard, learning to paddle-board and wind surf, gardening, cooking, playing with my pets. I’m a lifelong motorcycle rider, and currently ride a Yamaha Star 650 custom. So, between the bass, the dog, and my bike, my house can get pretty loud!
Age you started playing your instrument: in the 6th grade
Favorite onstage moment: My favorite onstage moments occur when I can’t tell if it is sweat or tears running down my face.
Favorite piece of music: My musical tastes are quite eclectic, with Glam Rock and electro-dance being my favorites as far as pops goes, and in the orchestra, I like the heavy stuff, so I can ‘bring my thunder’.
