Carol Gonzalez-Sheak, Owner
With a true passion for helping others and an extensive background in healthcare, Carol Gonzalez-Sheak is pleased to bring a trust name in senior home care back to the city of San Jose.
Before entering the corporate world, Carol’s focus was on furthering her education. This led her to obtain a B.A. in human biology from Stanford University, an M.A. in experimental psychology from Emory University, and a Ph.D. in biopsychology from the University of Georgia.
Carol pursued a business career in the healthcare products industry for more than 25 years, working with medical device companies. She also ventured into consumer marketing as a market research manager with Franklin Covey; her role transitioned to an account manager for its subsidiary. In 2001, Carol resumed her healthcare career in the pharmaceutical industry working in director and associate director positions in business development and market research at NPS Pharmaceuticals, and Merck & Co., respectively.
In 2009, Carol decided to pursue consulting and relocated from New Jersey to the San Francisco Bay Area to be closer to family. She also met her husband Richard after moving here!
Carol’s involvement with many organizations within the health industry helped her identify a life goal of owning a business. Prior to making the decision to join Right at Home, Carol was an independent contractor and a business consultant for a few startups, most notably as a founding committee member of the mentoring program at the Bay Area chapter of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA).
Carol entered the senior care profession because of a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. With the passion to provide care to those in need, and with appreciation of Right at Home’s goals and values, Carol is devoted to her clients and works closely with her neighboring Right at Home offices to improve quality of life for those she serves.
