Sheila and her friend Coco were prison inmates that harassed Hope Brady while she was in prison after killing Stefano. They also attempted to intimidate any new inmates, but Hope protected them while she was protected by Chille. Sheila and Coco realized they would never be able to get to Hope while Chille wasn't around, so they killed Chille by stabbing her in the chest. The duo later attacked Hope in her cell and stabbed her, but she survived and was admitted to the prison hospital. Hope intended to fight against the duo, but Hattie helped her escaped, so they attacked her and put her in the hospital.

In September 2017, Sheila was released from Statesville. Adrienne Johnson convinced her to go to the Kiriakis mansion and give a letter to Justin Kiriakis. Everyone thought Adrienne was Bonnie Lockhart, but Sheila decided to humor "Bonnie", and soon found out she was telling the truth when she came face to face with Bonnie, who was staying at the mansion. Sheila was persuaded to keep quiet by accepting payment from Bonnie and took a job as a maid at the Kiriakis mansion. Sheila reconnected with her old friend Eli Grant, and eventually fled town when Bonnie was exposed.

Sheila returned in late 2018 to help Bonnie when she was arrested. Sheila brought Bonnie’s assumed daughter with Lucas as a way for Bonnie to get out of prison. Sheila didn’t buy Bonnie’s claim that the child was hers and Lucas.
