Sheree Ellingson is the owner of Senior Helpers of West Jacksonville. She purchased this franchise after the experience of losing her dad to cancer 12 years ago. Sheree traveled and trained companies on accounting software when her mom called telling her of her dad's illness. She went back to Virginia as often as possible and found out how hard taking care of senior can be first hand. This inspired Sheree to purchase the franchise eight years ago.
Sheree holds an MBA in business which helps in the day-to-day operations. She has grown the business from a start-up company to a $1M company within 7 ½ years. Sheree feels very blessed and grateful for all God's grace.
Sheree likes to spend time with family, friends and her constant companion, Charlie, the golden retriever she adopted in August 2016.

Andrea has been in the healthcare industry for many years and love being a part of the process to help seniors live the best life that they are capable of. Andrea has lived in Jacksonville most of her life. She has two teen boys, Nicholas- 19 and Michael-16 that are both still living at home. They are awesome boys and she is excited to see the young men that they are becoming. She grew up at the beach and remembers when South beach Parkway was still a dirt road and the teenagers would drag race down Hodges where it dead ended by JTB! Not anymore!! Many of the woods that she explored as a child (yes, those were the days when kids still played outside!) are now housing developments!.
She received her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of North Florida in 1994 and has held various positions within the healthcare and most specifically the senior industry. She loves partnering with our other senior providers to serve our community's most vulnerable people. Most people know that she loves talking to people about what she does and is very proud to be able to represent a company that truly makes a difference in people's lives.
