Sheffield led the United States women's sprinters and hurdlers at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and continues her rise in prominence for coaching at the International Level with this appointment, her first head coaching assignment with the USA National Team. She also has coached with the USA at the 2013 World Outdoor Championship, the Pan American Games and the World Indoor Championships.
