The Italian Ambassador teamed up with Giorgio Armani + Elle Magazine to recognize 10 DC-area women who are making an impact ~ including Sheila. The reception took place at the ambassador's official residence, Villa Firenze.
The Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, Virginia, is close to Sheila's heart. The project took 10 years, and she faced racism, local opposition and economic threats before it opened in 2013. Since then, the 340-acre resort has been a fantastic success ~ just one piece of the many businesses Sheila's Salamander company has brought to Virginia's horse country.
