Sheila Gholkar

Hello!  I’m Sheila Gholkar, a west coaster at heart, and a pre-law and wellness tutor at Adams.  I’m originally from Arizona, where I went to both college and law school.  Interested in public service and economic development work, I majored in economics and Spanish in college.  I worked with a nonprofit and traveled the year after graduation, and soon after, I decided on law school.  After finishing law school, I moved to Boston to join my husband Vinayak.  Since then, I've been working as a public interest law attorney.  I spent two years at a legal aid organization representing low-income Bostonians on issues like access to public housing and food stamps.  

I now do trial work at the U.S. Department of Labor, where I focus on employment and immigration matters.  Interested in law, nonprofits, travel, advocacy work, or anything similar?  Come chat with me!  We live on the second floor of Claverly Hall in J-204 with our puppy, Pepper.  I’m thrilled to be a part of the Adams community and I can’t wait to get to know all of you!
