Sheila's parents immigrated to the United States from India in the mid 1960s. She was born in Hinsdale, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, and grew up in many places where there were very few minorities. Often, she was often the only minority in the room. Sheila has observed both the incredible growth of the Asian population in Connecticut and their inability to get adequate representation in the judicial system. One of Sheila's primary goals is to help ensure that Asian Pacific Americans are adequately represented in our Courts, our government, and our educational system.
Sheila is a Commissioner for the Asian Pacific Islander Affairs Commission of Connecticut, where she was recently elected Secretary. She is also a member of the board for the South Asian Bar Association of Connecticut, and serves as Vice President of the Executive Board of SNEHA, an organization that assists South Asian women, particularly victims of domestic violence. Sheila graduated from the University of Bridgeport in 1995 and Quinnipiac University School of Law in 1999, and is an active member of the Greater Bridgeport and Connecticut Bar Associations, as well as the Collaborative Divorce Attorneys of Fairfield County. Reported cases: Sweeney v. Sweeney, 75 Conn. App. 279 (815 A. 2d 287) (2003); Chyung v. Chyung, 86 Conn. App. 665 (862 A. 2d 374) (2004).
