Having grown up in central Pennsylvania, Sheila is an avid lover of mountains and all things nature.

Sheila is the primary contact for seminary and Region 8 archival reference requests and is responsible for the copy and original cataloging of library materials located on both campuses. She assists patrons with all their research needs and is continually working on projects to improve the Archives, especially digitization and outreach. Sheila also oversees interns and volunteers and maintains the A.R. Wentz Library Blog.
