Meet Our Team

Sheila Schroeder is the Director of Client Development at Mosaic Financial Partners, a wealth management firm in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As Director of Client Development at Mosaic, I focus on bringing together the needs of our clients with the resources and expertise the Mosaic team has to offer. I have over 25 years of financial services experience, with an emphasis on forging engaged relationships by tailoring products and ideas to client needs. 

I am passionate about reaching financial independence, empowering women financially, and teaching financial literacy.

As a senior institutional equity sales executive and team leader, my primary focus was on Asian/Japanese markets, in sectors including real estate, commodities, infrastructure, consumer and financials. I have served as lead salesperson on multiple IPO's and secondary offerings, including a number in excess of $1B. This experience helps me bring strong technical perspective on global markets and public equities. I have a deep understanding of how market trends and cycles impact investor portfolios.

I am involved with several non-profits in fundraising and organizational roles, including serving as President of the Board of Trustees for the San Francisco Waldorf School. I co-founded Electing Women San Francisco to further national campaigns of female democratic US Senate and Gubernatorial candidates. Currently I am serving on the Chautauqua Institution Promise campaign as a lead gifts volunteer.

In my free time, I am an avid runner and have been running since my teenage years. I also enjoy trying out the weekend recipes in the WSJ, Ravelry knitting, reading with my book club, and travel. Most of the time I also like to hang out with my 15-year-old twins.

Sheila Schroeder Will Teach Audience How to Craft Financial Policies

Our spitfire Director of Client Development is currently in New York, and she's about to lead a workshop on developing personal financial policies. Implementing such policies leads to greater financial satisfaction and less stress, and learning how to do so from Sheila is a joy and a pleasure. 

“Having a personal policy is the crux of it because it helps to create more of whatever you value in life,” Schroeder said. “A financial planning policy is a tool for making decisions in the face of uncertainty. … We’re living in a rapidly changing world.”
