Sheila Otto Phillips, Program Officer

Sheila currently works as a program officer for the Foundation.  She brings both programmatic and administrative experience from several nonprofits, including The Alliance for Strong Families and Communities, and Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis.  She is passionate about the essential role nonprofit organizations, of all sizes, play in our communities and how this work can continue to be more effective.  She joined the team at RMSFF in June 2017 and is involved in a wide variety of work within the foundation.

Sheila holds both an undergraduate degree in International Affairs and an MBA, with a focus in nonprofit administration, from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.  Although she loves Milwaukee, the Twin Cities will always be her home!

Sheila lives with her husband, Eric, in St. Paul and enjoys gardening, practicing yoga, is an avid basketball fan and participates in a women’s recreational basketball league, and is always on the lookout for new restaurants and neighborhood hot spots!
