Sheila was born October 29, 1957, in Mooresville, NC to Shirley Settlemyer and the late Cecil Settlemyer. A 1976 graduate of Ashbrook High School, Sheila went on to graduate from the University of North Carolina Charlotte with a degree in Psychology. A lifelong resident of North Carolina, Sheila relocated to Myrtle Beach in 2018, and quickly immersed herself into the community, made many friends and became a member of First Presbyterian Church Myrtle Beach.

Sheila spent much of her working career in service to the community. She served in Probation and Parole for the state of North Carolina and worked at various hospitals as well. Sheila left public service for a while and managed the staffing company, Mega Force, in the Wilmington area and helped it become one of the most successful staffing companies in the area. Later, Sheila returned to her true calling of helping others as a social and case worker.

Upon relocating to Myrtle Beach, Sheila finished her working career as a case worker for Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs providing support and services to individuals suffering from traumatic brain injures and/or severe spinal cord injuries.
