My name is Dennie Sheats, I am the founder of Extended Hands of Georgia, Inc. I was born and raised in the rural town of Winnsboro, South Carolina. After graduating from high school, I attended Allen University in Columbia, SC and graduated with a BA degree with a concentration in Marketing. Afterwards, I attended Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi and obtained an MBA. My work history included teaching at a college level for a couple of years but was given an opportunity by one of my managers to work in sales. I worked in the sales industry for more than 20 years both as a sales representative and as a branch manager. I received many awards including top sales person of the year, top sales nationwide, top performer, recognition awards, leadership awards, President’s awards to name a few. I have always had a desire and a personal interest in helping people/others but I had no clue as to why and how. Although I had a successful career in the sales industry, I was still feeling unfulfilled and was seeking my purpose and passion. After my mother became ill, I moved her into my home to care for her. A light went off in my spirit and it was then that I had finally discovered my purpose, my passion and my undeniable calling.
I can’t imagine going through this without Extended Hands. In a life where there are so many things to worry about, I’m glad I don’t have to worry about my day-to-day care. I’m so lucky Dennie picked up the phone!
