Shelly Sun is the CEO and co-founder of BrightStar Care(R), a premium healthcare staffing company providing the full continuum of care, from homecare to supplemental staffing for corporate clients such as nursing homes and physicians. At BrightStar's inception, Shelly, along with her husband and co-founder JD Sun, risked everything to pioneer a company offering more to those in need. In 2005, BrightStar launched its franchising efforts, becoming the first and only franchising company in the country to specialize in both medical and non-medical care and healthcare staffing.

Shelly is a Certified Franchise Executive and participates on the International Franchise Association's (IFA) Board of Directors and will be the Chairwoman of the IFA 2017-2018 (currently elected as Secretary of the IFA).
