She has taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in the US and South America, and is currently revising two popular hiking guidebooks. She has been an instructor and trip leader for the Colorado Mountain Club, and is a nordic ski patroller. She is excited to work for HERA and its very important mission.

The HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is deeply saddened by the passing of Sheila Phelan Wright on November 18, 2015.

In addition to being Professor Emerita at DU, Sheila was a long-time friend and advocate for HERA. She was smart, always asked great questions and was an important critical thinker for HERA. The organization was very fortunate to have received her warmth and skills as she served in many capacities for us including serving on the Board from 2013 to 2014 and receiving the Power of One Award from the HERA Foundation in 2015. It is with heavy hearts that we attended her Memorial on December 2, 2015 at the University of Denver to say good bye to Sheila, one of our most admirable friends.
