Sheila grew up in Pennington, graduating from Hopewell Valley High School. She attended Oberlin College, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Texas, where she received a BA in English. Sheila's husband was a pilot in the Marine Corps for five years, when they lived in Florida, Mississippi, Texas, California, and North Carolina.
They then returned to Pennington, just in time for their oldest daughter to enter kindergarten. Their four children attended Hopewell Valley Schools, and The Pennington School. Those children are now all graduated from college and married with children of their own.
Sheila and her husband live in a pre-Revolutionary farmhouse in Hopewell Township. The property was a legal distillery until Prohibition; hence the name Old Stillhouse Farm.
It still occupies more than forty acres: farmland assessment, woodlot management and subdivision are part of the Grahams personal experience.
Sheila has been a realtor since 1985. Her scope includes Pennington, Hopewell, Princeton, Lawrenceville, Montgomery, Ewing, Amwell, and Lambertville.
