CU Engage Employee Spotlight – Sheila Wilson

Employee Spotlight Sheila-01

This month our employee spotlight is on Sheila Wilson! Sheila is a Senior Project Analyst at CU Engage and has been with the team for almost one year. She is responsible for demand management and supports the operational and sales teams.

Sheila is a Rockstar when it comes to knocking out documents for the sales team to share with clients. She manages to make herself available at the drop of a hat and provide the guidance and support needed to help our clients in the most efficient ways possible. The team appreciates how helpful and cooperative Sheila is, making every effort to seamlessly assist on projects as they evolve.

Born in Spencer, Iowa, Sheila moved Allen, Texas when she was 13 years old with her parents, sister, and brother.  She has lived in North Texas ever since and currently resides in Little Elm, Texas.  After high school, Sheila attended Collin College and received her AAS degree and has worked in the financial industry since. She has held various roles at a credit union, a fin-tech company, and is now with the CU Engage team and our credit union clients.

When she isn’t working, Sheila enjoys spending time with family and friends. You can often find her at her son’s football or soccer games, running, wine walks (she says the best one was a Wine 5K, we are going to need to look into joining her for the next one), hiking, riding bikes, pretty much anything outdoors when the weather permits…and during football season watching football (“Go Cowboys!”).

If you haven’t had the privilege of getting to know Sheila yet, read on to learn a few facts about her. Though you’ll just have to take me at my word when I tell you how kind she is!
