Sheila Marcello

Title: Corporate & Community Development Manager


Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: I spent over 15 years in the world of marketing, advertising, public relations, and event planning—10 of which were spent right here in Las Vegas—producing high-profile fundraising events, creating marketing campaigns, building brands and establishing sustainable partnerships within our community. I have had the privilege of playing integral roles in the opening of some major projects, including, Crystals at City Center, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino. Most recently, I have worked for Production Theory to create fundraising events for the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation and Folded Flag Foundation.

While my experience lies mainly in the hospitality, casino, and luxury retail industries, I’ve always found the most joy in working with organizations that make a difference in children’s lives.

Education: B.A. in Journalism and Public Relations from Arizona State University. Graduate of Leadership Las Vegas, class of 2014.

About me: Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé Jeff, and our rescued silky terrier, Enzo. My hobbies include, any activities outdoors, golf, traveling, and attempting to cook.

My favorite thing about working at MAWSNV: Being a part of a team that grants wishes and special experiences that allow critically ill children to pause from their complicated lives and enjoy being a child.

My wish would be: To take a ride on a rocket ship to space.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ”
