Sheila Appel Alexander is the Vice President of American Midwest Tax & Accounting, Inc. and has been working in finance for almost two decades. Originally working as a bank teller and book keeper, Sheila eventually moved to American Midwest Bank.
While working as a teller, she attended Northern Illinois University full-time and earned her bachelor’s degree.

She has even been responsible for training credit analysts, a skill which makes her uniquely qualified for working with investments and money management.
