Speaker Bio:

Sheila Buswell is the CEO and Co-Founder of Buswell Biomedical, a veteran of the US Army and the author of Is This Seat For Me? Overcoming Imposter Syndrome in Everyday Life and Business.

In her book, Sheila shares the stories of a diverse group of accomplished individuals who struggled with self- doubt and found ways to overcome it. Along with her coauthors, her book reveals personal experiences with imposter syndrome—from hardship and suffering, to the final freedom of realizing they were enough.

After losing her scholarship to college, Sheila enrolled in the US Army where she cross trained as a Generator Mechanic. After receiving a medical discharge in 2001, Sheila transitioned back into civilian life. Committed to not ending up in a minimum wage job flipping burgers, Sheila enrolled in the Missouri University of Science and Technology so she could build a career as an engineer.

For years, Sheila both had success in her career and also endured a tremendous amount of sexism. She left her job in 2019 to found Buswell Biomedical, a company based off the device she invented which is controlled by Machine Learning.
