Professional Engineer (P.E.)

Sheela joined the Anthem team in 2019 and has since moved back home to California to be a full-time remote employee of Anthem. Throughout her studies and professional training, Sheela has been an avid volunteer, applying her engineering mind to the structural design around the world. In Kathmandu, she worked on important recovery efforts following the 2015 earthquake, and in 2018 she traveled to the Philippines to develop resources to aid in the seismic retrofit of at-risk structures. Sheela has a strong passion for the integration of sustainable building design, life cycle analysis and structures. She hopes to help mesh the world of structural engineering with sustainable design principles and hopefully continue to apply these methods abroad to developing communities. She is also the Anthem photographer, often taking photos of the many beautiful, completed projects you can see on the website, as well as taking photos of all the fun Anthem teambuilding we have!
