Scheff is a founding member and current meeting planner for the National Dance Education Organization. A graduate of the famed New York City High School of Performing Arts, she is a former dancer with the Joffrey Ballet.

She was the founder and director of the inner-city school's nationally recognized dance program in which more than 300 of the school's 900 students elected to participate. The program treated dance as a core subject- emphasized the creating, performing, and responding processes- and integrated the arts and other core subjects. She developed a cutting-edge reading comprehension program using text as inspiration for original choreography created by children. After retiring, she moved to California, where she taught part-time at California State University at Dominguez Hills and Loyola Marymount University and was a teaching artist in schools in Los Angeles and Alameda counties. She is a founding member of the NDEO and a former treasurer and board member- she served as president before becoming the executive director.
