Halili entered Philippine showbusiness through the first wave of StarStruck, the reality-based star search of GMA Network. She was one of finalists, dubbed as the Final 14. Halili, together with those who were eliminated during the course of the show, are now known as Starstruck Batch 1 Avengers. She was linked with her co-survivor Rainier Castillo but it was later confirmed that they really dated after the show. She also starred in a commercial for Head & Shoulders where she was partnered with Alvin Aragon.
She considers her role in the highly acclaimed remake series MariMar (2007) as her biggest break on television. She played the role of Monica, the oppressive and ditzy best friend of Angelika, portrayed by Katrina Halili. While Katrina's character never improved, Sheena's villain role turned good in the end. After Marimar, Halili would star in another number of remake TV Series such as LaLola (2007) as the antagonist Vicky, Ako si Kim Sam Soon (2008) as Cynthia, Zorro (2009) as the recurring Lena, Rosalinda (2009) as the titular protagonist's best friend Becky, and in Full House (2009).
