Shiela is also an active member in her community. As a single mother of two beautiful children, she has learned the importance of sacrifice and altruism. Camaraderie and philanthropy are very important to her, and she gives back to those around her by actively contributing to charities such as Hope for Kids and Smile Train. She is also an active participant in her children's schools, Malibu High School and Marquez Elementary School, where she contributes in any way that she can - always with a smile on her face.
