Judyth Piazza interviews Sherri Murphy, Elite Connections on The American Perspective

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Sherri Murphy is the founder of Elite Connections, America`s most successful matchmaker agency. 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 thirteen years and walked into the matchmaking business by sheer fate. In 1994, someone offered her free membership to Great Expectations but she declined. She later met her husband Bill through a personal matchmaker, which 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 New York for the event annually. The fabulous event has resulted in numerous 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.

Sherri`s company, Elite Connections has been featured on NBC, The New York Times, Forbes, Variety, The Hollywood Sentinel, News Blaze, The Beverly Hills Times, Westside Magazine, Westlake Magazine, Successful Singles Magazine, Love Works" T.V. Show, Love on the Edge radio talk show, and in many other local newspapers among more. Sherri is co-author 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.
