Sheila’s latest book, What Color Is Your Brain?TM

, is an enjoyable and compelling guide to how a person’s Brain Colors affect human behavior and interpersonal dynamics. First published in 1997, Princess Shayna’s Invisible Visible Gift takes the original core concepts of self-esteem and self-discovery later explored in What Color Is Your Brain?TM, and spins it into a children’s fairy tale. As a long-standing advocate for diabetes research and education, Sheila donates a percentage of her book royalties to help champion that cause.

Professional Speaker

Over three decades of significant professional development opportunities—combined with astute observations of human behavior—enabled Sheila to develop the What Color is Your Brain?TM Workshop. Her innovative style has won praise from business executives, educators, community leaders, parents, students and the media in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America.



In addition to teaching 3rd grade and High School ESL (English as a Second Language), Sheila has been an adjunct faculty member of William Rainey Harper College and a guest instructor at DePaul, Penn State, Northwood, and Roosevelt Universities.

    I met Sheila about a year ago, at a women conference, where I was a speaker too. I had a revelation listening to her, and I recognized myself immediately in on of hr color;starting with that day ,I applied her principles and insights in my daily work, as well as family time. Initially it was only fun and an instant stress reliever for me. I found myself with time closer to people around me, and more understanding, less impatient,with a powerful way to understand and deal with my emotions ,frustrations, or happiness.When sometimes strikes me as intolerable,I say to myself: this person is clearly a”one of the color brain”, thus I should take it like this,and deal in Sheila’s way….I know way this person is behaving like this
    From having fun and distract myself,I got to use her methods in my daily life with a lot a great feedback
    Thanks, Sheila,for helping me discover these beautiful ideas that I carried in my mind without knowing how to unrevealed them and use them
