Sherri Murphy is the founder of Elite Connections. Originally from New Mexico she has a warm and friendly southwestern attitude and is a natural people person. Sherri finds the job of introducing single people a fulfilling one and has done it all her life. Her philosophy is that there is someone out there for everyone, but you won't find them while sitting at home. You have to be proactive. Sherri believes that if you are not meeting the right person you need to have an open mind and try a new route. Her style of match making has worked for many Elite clients and she now works with mostly VIP and international clients.

Sherri moved to Southern California from Mammoth in 1976, sold real estate for over 13 years and walked into the matchmaking business by sheer fate. In 1994, someone offered her free membership to Great Expectations but she declined. Later met her husband Bill through a personal matchmaker, this inspired her to launch her own company in 1994. She opened her first Elite Connections office in Beverly Hills in 1996.

Sherri has hosted a black tie fund-raiser for over a decade that benefits needy children. People fly in from as far as NY for the event annually. This is a fabulous event and she's had marriages from people that have attended. She's also a huge animal lover and recently hosted her first fund-raiser for a new animal rescue (Pug Nation LA).

Sherri’s company, Elite Connections has been featured on NBC, The New York Times, Forbes, Variety, Beverly Hills Magazine, Westside Magazine, Westlake Magazine, "Successful Singles Magazine", "Love Works" TV Show, "Love on the Edge" radio talk show and many local newspapers. Sherri is coauthor of "Matters of the Heart", a popular dating advice column that appeared in a South Bay newspaper for many years. For Sherri, her biggest satisfaction is seeing people happy together, and when there are engagements and marriages it's even more rewarding.
