“Sheila is one of the sharpest minds I know — and at my age I know an awful lot of people. Her writing reflects and benefits from that mind.
“She researches with care, then presents her findings logically and gracefully. [Her article on the Boston bombing] is a tremendous analysis and and contribution to the literature.
“She’s energetic. She knows when to initiate and when to follow. She’s well rounded and a pleasure to work with.”
Dee Caruso, writer for 1960s TV sitcoms and top comics such as Robin Williams, and UCLA screenwriting professor for 20 years, Brentwood, CA

“Sheila embodies the qualities of a top notch journalist, in both intellect and character. Her passion for journalism comes from the purest of motivations: a fervent desire to create a more just, equitable and peaceful world.
“The articles Sheila has written for me have been doggedly researched, intelligently organized, and eloquently written. I have received numerous letters of appreciation from our subscribers about her work.
“Sheila demonstrates an uncommon degree of intellectual independence. She reads widely, knows her own mind and is not easily swayed by the opinions of others, even a large group of others. She has been willing, in her writing, to take a story where the evidence leads, regardless of the popularity of that conclusion. She does not, however, go beyond the evidence; her summaries are well supported.
“She has overcome formidable obstacles to make significant contributions in the fields of advertising, journalism and film. She is fun loving and outgoing, and focused on how she can contribute to the world. I enthusiastically recommend her to you.”
Craig McKee, publisher, Truth and Shadows, Montreal, Quebec
“One article from Sheila has brought in more traffic to my political blog than 25 articles from all the other guest authors combined. Even four years after publication, her expose on the Boston bombing continues to place among the top ten most read articles, and has been viewed 200,000 times.
“Sheila has an exceptional sense of how to identify and communicate a message in the most effective and persuasive way possible, and with a unwavering determination to be the best in her field, she knows how to turn that knowledge into results.
“She is able to analyze a complex situation and see the patterns and clues that go unseen by almost everyone else. I have seen first-hand how she brings integrity to everything she does, and is willing to take courageous stands that others often will not. I expect we will continue to work together in some capacity for many years to come.”
“The best measure of Sheila Casey’s qualifications is the degree of pleasure I have experienced in working with her.
“The consumer loan campaign was an outstanding success as a result of her creative and marketing expertise. The number of loans booked increased 364% for November and December…the IRA campaign came in a week early and $3K under budget. Sheila Casey had sole responsibility for this.
“She continually demonstrates a willingness to work hard and be creative on our behalf. I appreciate her enthusiasm and support and would recommend her to any financial institution.”
Mari Jane Panek,Internal Communications Manager at Hitachi Vantara, Santa Clara, CA
