Shelley Wilson
Founder and President of Wilson Homecare
 
Inspired by her own personal experience with the need for quality and compassionate homecare, Shelley Wilson opened Wilson Homecare in 1996.  She has guided its growth into one of the state's most successful private homecare agencies, with more than 200 employees providing personal home healthcare services in residences across O'ahu.

The story of Shelley and WHC is one of resilience, can-do entrepreneurial spirit and service to our community. During her career in the military as an Army medic, a severe car accident left Shelley with multiple broken bones and injuries. While in recovery she realized how beneficial it would have been to have had homecare services, which unfortunately were not available in her area. Years later, after moving to Hawaii and working in the healthcare field, she was motivated to start her own business providing quality homecare services at affordable prices. As a disabled veteran, Wilson was able to use her military leadership skills to create a top-flight team of highly competent and compassionate caregivers able to provide clients with premium home healthcare services.

Since establishing the agency, Shelley's management skills have earned her a number of awards, including Pacific Business News' "40 under Forty" and Wilson Homecare has twice been named one of the newspaper's "Fastest 50" companies.

Wilson is also active in the business community, serving as a board member for The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii and is the incoming chair of its Health Issues Committee, board member of the Hawaii Society of Corporate Planners and is the 2007 president-elect for the local chapter board of the Organization of Women Leaders. Shelley is also a member of the Healthcare Association of Hawaii, National Organization of Female Executives, National Association of Homecare and the Better Business Bureau of Hawaii.

Between devoting the majority of her time to her business and community organizations, Wilson also provides international support to aid underprivileged children. She traveled to Africa with Rotary International to help vaccinate children for polio eradication and spent one month in Vietnam with the "Kids Without Borders" humanitarian group.  Shelley has touched the lives of hundreds of individuals, from needy children in foreign countries to local families here in Hawaii.
