InfoSheila was born in Stillwater, Minnesota in 1956, and her family moved to River Falls, Wisconsin in 1970.

Sheila graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1978 with a Bachelor’s degree in animal science and returned to River Falls to become a loan officer for the Production Credit Association while farming part-time on the Harsdorf family dairy farm.

During Sheila’s service in the Wisconsin Assembly, she was appointed to the Agriculture Committee, the Legislative Advisory Committee of the Minnesota-Wisconsin Boundary Area Commission, the Legislative Council Special Committee on Land Use, the Assembly Committees on Natural Resources and Veterans and Military Affairs, and was the ranking Republican on Colleges and Universities. In 1995, Sheila was selected to the prestigious Joint Committee on Finance, a 16-member committee responsible for drafting the state’s budget.

In 1998 Sheila took a brief reprieve to work at home on the family farm. Two years later, Sheila entered the 10th State Senate race against an eight-year incumbent. She was successful in the campaign, and now serves to represent all of St. Croix County and parts of Burnett, Dunn, Pierce, and Polk Counties.

Sheila currently is serving again on the legislature’s budget writing committee (Joint Committee on Finance), as well as the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Higher Education and Senate Committee on State and Federal Relations and Information Technology.

In her hometown of River Falls, Sheila remains an active member of the Luther Memorial Church. She is a past member of the Kinnickinnic River Land Trust Board and the Wisconsin Conservation Corps Board.

Additionally, she is former President of Wisconsin FFA Foundation Sponsor’s Board.
