Sheila Schnear, RNC, BA My name is Sheila and work as a registered nurse here at BW health center. I really like my job and find working with the college age population enjoyable and keeps me young at heart. I am proud to be a BW alum. I work at the health center 32 hours a week, but in my spare time you will find me outside in the garden or walking. When it is cold outside you will find me curled up with a book. My job here at the health center is to keep you healthy or get you better when you are ill. I think you will find the health center user friendly and the staff welcoming. Good Luck at BW!
