Greenbaum Becomes Federation President

Sheila Greenbaum becomes Federation’s president – and only the second female to hold the position in Federation’s 106-year history. She is an attorney and community leader. She succeeds Heschel J. Raskas, Ph. D.

Sheila, a director and shareholder at the Clayton law firm of Capes, Sokol, Goodman & Sarachan P.C., is the first President to be nominated under Federation’s revised governance model, an outcome of the recent Strategic Plan, which she led. Sheila has held key Federation posts including Vice President of Campaign and Planning & Allocations.

Sheila has a long list of civic accomplishments, too. She served on the ACLU national and affiliate boards, chaired the Missouri deferred Compensation Commission, and was the Democratic Director of the Board of Elections, City of St. Louis. She served as interim director and instructor at St. Louis University School of Law, and Senior Staff Attorney in the U.S. Court of Appeals, Eighth Circuit. She also serves on a committee for FOCUS St. Louis.

She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Case Western Reserve University and a Juris Doctor (with distinction) from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law.

Sheila and her husband Dr. Gary Wasserman have one daughter Rubyn, a student at Washington University.
