Sheila Barry is CEO and Co-founder of SC Creative Innovations, a Northern California start-up whose mission is to enable the dreams of fellow inventors.

Based on trial and error, she developed a system of successful, timesaving techniques from her years in the public sector.

She is an active member of the Inventors Alliance and enjoys the creative process of inventing. She holds a BA in Hispanic Studies and a MA in Linguistics (TESOL) from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
