Wisconsin Lutheran College – 2009

Since then, he has worked to give his time and talents back to the community, according to Lisa Leffel, director of alumni relations at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

“He has a strong passion for community involvement and giving back, which has led him to be involved with multiple community organizations and serve on several boards,” Leffel said.

Shiels has served on the Alumni Board at Wisconsin Lutheran College since 2015 and acted as chairman of the board from 2016 to 2019. He has also served on the Wisconsin Lutheran College Board of Regents since 2017.

In addition to his service for his alma mater, Shiels is actively engaged in his church community at Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Brookfield.

Professionally, Shiels is an active member in the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association (WCA), having served on the Government Affairs Committee from 2016 to 2018.
