No? Well, don't feel bad. She only shows up once in 1 Chronicles 7:20-24 when times were tough, the people were tougher, and the land was toughest.
The family of Ephriam made an ill-fated decision to rustle cattle from the Philistines at Gath. The men of Gath protected their livestock and Ephraim's men were slaughtered. The family's leaders were gone, something they couldn't afford with enemies on every side. Then Sheerah was born, a girl in a weak house.
Girls aren't generally recorded in family trees. If they are, they're somebody's daughter or sister or wife. They don't typically do anything...except Sheerah. She built Lower and Upper Beth-horon, and Uzzen-sheerah.
People build towns once they conquer them. People who name cities after themselves are leaders. Sheerah's circumstances were hard, some would say hopeless, but they provided her opportunities to build something lasting with her life.
Our situations and struggles do the same. May God open our eyes.
