Sheila Volante, MBA

Managing Partner

Sheila leads the development of partnerships, sales, and system architecture for Seer Strategic Solutions, LLC. Before founding the firm, she managed – and in many cases, rescued – millions in complex projects for Fortune 1,000 clients such as Target, Xerox, Aetna, Airbus, MGM Resorts International, Kaiser Permanente, and Caesars Entertainment. A native of Los Angeles, Sheila holds an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management and is a PhD candidate at Capella University.



After earning her bachelor’s degree from DeVry University in 2007, Sheila started as a master scheduler for Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where she guided installers to complete her first project three months ahead of schedule.


The following year, Sheila began consulting to optimize project management practices. Her expertise with Microsoft Project Server helped her acquire and serve clients such as Alcatel-Lucent, Tetra-Tech, Hi-Shear, and the Naval Base Ventura County.

In 2009, Sheila landed an opportunity with McStarlite as the program manager for the Airbus A350 XWB Engine Inlet. She traveled extensively to Toulouse, France to explore testing, solve process gaps, and improve delivery times. By program completion, Sheila had secured the International Airbus Standard (GRAMS) certification, deployed Lean Six Sigma process improvements on the manufacturing floor, and received awards recognizing her leadership and performance. At the same time, Sheila attended Keller Graduate School of Management and graduated in 2011 with a Master’s in Business Administration.

In 2014 Sheila was hospitalized with a rare form of cancer, but beat it back after a year-long fight. Once recovered, she returned to managing projects, coordinating training, resolving project management challenges, and deploying Power BI for clients including Xerox, the Port of San Diego, and San Francisco’s Muni Railway. She moved her consulting practice to Las Vegas, where she gained a reputation in the hospitality industry for carrying complex projects with MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts, Boyd Gaming, and Caesars Entertainment.

Sheila met Jason Price at Core BTS in 2019 and joined the Microsoft change management and organizational effectiveness team as a senior consultant. For two years, she facilitated dozens of Customer Immersion Experiences, deployed change management programs across 20 projects, and trained over 50,000 employees. During her tenure, Sheila consistently received the company’s top customer satisfaction ratings and raving comments from end users about her inspiring delivery. 


In 2020, Sheila was accepted by Capella University to pursue her doctoral degree in business management with a concentration in strategy and innovation. She expects to graduate in 2024 with a thesis on the dehumanization of the global economic workforce.


Sheila left Core BTS in early 2021 to found Seer Strategic Solutions, LLC and build a Microsoft adoption consulting practice in a partner-to-partner model. Her work focuses on the development of partnerships, sales, and system architecture for the firm. 


Sheila lives in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada, where she enjoys playing in billiard tournaments and detailing sportscars.
