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.

Anna comes from the frozen tundra of the north (finally wised up) with lots of experience with scheduling. She will be our new office scheduler. Hard job getting everyone exactly where they are supposed to be but I’m sure she can handle this.
Jennifer will be taking over for our wonderful Nancy who would like to retire (poo!) We so welcome Jennifer with all her experience in human resources but on the same hand, so sad that “our wonderful” Nancy will be leaving us.
