A longtime lover of the movies, Sheila is also an experienced editor who revels in un-dangling modifiers and de-splicing commas. Beyond her freelance work at Looper and full-time editing gig, she writes book summaries and reviews for getAbstract. In her free time, Sheila reads Czech fiction, writes stories about sad women, and rewatches “Fleabag.”


Sheila holds a BA from Barnard College and an MFA from Brooklyn College.
