Before joining the Advisory Council, Shif had spent many years working as a teacher. Well-known for her ability to inspire students, she eventually gained a prestigious position in Theed University. Thanks to her amazing career in Theed, Shif was then elected to be the new Education Regent. Amidala used to be one of her students and thus carefully listened to Shif's opinions.
During the invasion, many Naboo were sent to jail, including members of the Advisory Council. Shif spent her time in the prison camps alleviating people's minds and even getting some classes running.
