Jorien van der Heijden grew up as the third child in a village in the Netherlands. She liked games from a young age, being introduced to Warcraft III and the world of by her sister. She was a big fan of Tower Defense, and later also DotA. Sheever became serious about gaming with World of Warcraft, raiding with hardcore raiding guild 'Ascendence' for about 4 years. It was not long after quitting World of Warcraft in 2011 that she received a Dota 2 beta key. She started streaming Dota 2 on in early December 2011, switching to in March 2012.

Sheever entered the casting world when she was asked to help out with an amateur Dota 2 tournament. She was hired as a caster at GosuGamers in April 2012, remaining with them until January 2013 when they were disbanded. Since then Sheever has been an increasingly well-known independent freelance caster, host, panelist and interviewer for Dota 2, appearing in many well-known events such as The International, Starladder, DreamLeague, and ESL.[1]

In May 2017, Sheever announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. [2] She continued attending events whilst undergoing radiation and chemotherapy and has been cancer-free since December 6, 2019.[3]


  • She is 1.89m (6'2") tall.[4]
  • Her nickname comes from her old World of Warcraft nickname - at the time she was reading a Robin Hobb book and found a sea serpent called "Shreever", she removed the R, and used "Sheever".[5]
