Sheila I. Drohan has over 40 years of experience making her mark as a visionary leader in the industry of corporate wellness and fitness. Co-founder, owner and CEO of Corporate Fitness Works, Sheila along with founding partner Brenda Loube built the company off of just three wellness contracts and a shared vision to lead a health revolution that moves everybody. Corporate Fitness Works is a certified women-owned business headquartered in St. Petersburg, FL. This year the company celebrates 27 years in business. In April of 2014, Corporate Fitness Works acquired the only other woman-owned competitor in their industry, L&T Health and Fitness. Through this friendly acquisition, Corporate Fitness Works has tripled their industry footprint, managing over 140 onsite fitness facilities in 26 states, plus the District of Columbia, and employing over 650 wellness and fitness industry professionals. As one of the first to provide comprehensive wellness and fitness programs for corporations back in the 1980’s, Sheila is considered a pioneer in her field and a source of inspiration to women-owned businesses across the nation. Her leadership has been recognized through such organizations as the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, by Enterprising Women magazine as Enterprising Women of the Year Honorable Mention and Club Industry’s Top 100 Fitness Companies in the United States. Sheila graduated in 1974 from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Health and Physical Education. There she earned numerous honors, including membership in Delta Psi Kappa, the national physical education honorary society, and was named the Outstanding Alumnus for 2004. In 1981, Sheila earned a Master’s degree in Public Administration with a Health emphasis from Rutgers University, also graduating with honors. As an active Slippery Rock alum, Sheila serves on the president’s advisory board, the exercise science advisory board and students in the exercise science field have an opportunity to receive a scholarship established in her name. After surviving breast cancer, Sheila believes that getting that second chance at life has only fueled her passion to inspire wellness through physical activity. The opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others is very much a driving force in the success of her company; a passion that through her leadership she has planted and interwoven throughout her team.
