A Film Theory major at UC Santa Barbara, Shields cut her teeth editing before transitioning into script supervising and working her way up the ladder. She quickly became a highly coveted script supervisor in the industry, working with directors including J.J. Abrams and Gore Verbinski, before moving on to direct and produce her own projects. She went on to form her own production company, Wingspan Pictures, in 2008, before starting her current venture, Genius Pictures - creating award-winning commercials, music videos, and shorts at both, including the viral sensation, “Love Is All You Need?”  The feature version of the short, supported by a versatile celebrity cast including Briana Evigan, Tyler Blackburn, Emily Osment, Elisabeth Röhm and Jeremy Sisto is set to be released soon.

Shields is involved with numerous educational programs, including USC's Rossier School of Education, with which she is producing an anti-bullying lesson plan. Through her work on the feature film she has become heavily involved in the nonprofit world as well, partnering with organizations including The Matthew Shepard Foundation, The Tyler Clementi Foundation, and Boo2Bullying among others.
