MEET SHEEVA

Sheeva started her career at the TJX companies, where she worked as a buyer in Boston, New York, and then Los Angeles. With that experience in retail, she decided to start her own venture. So in 2015, Sheeva founded a socially conscious e-commerce site, Local+Lejos, by traveling to developing nations and collaborating with women who hand-make soft goods that are then infused with a modern aesthetic for the design-oriented conscious consumer.  She now runs Local + Lejos, while also working on her next venture.  She holds an M.B.A. from UCLA's Anderson School of Business.  She was born in raised in Boston, where she grew up a soccer player and transitioned that need for cardio into obsessive marathon running.

Q & A

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND FREE TIME?

My dream Sunday is spent at the Korean Spa - with my cell phone put away! I go to a women's only spa, which I find freeing and refreshing. After the hot tubs and sauna, I read the weekly edition of the New Yorker.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM OFFICE/WORK SPACE?

My dream office space includes amazing natural light, lots of greenery, a stovetop to cook healthy breakfasts, and an area to shoot content.

WHAT DOES BEING LIBERATED MEAN TO YOU?

To me, being liberated means having the freedom and tools to do whatever you can dream!
