Sand Dollar Services, Inc. here to help the Small Business or the Individual taxpayer in solving their accounting and tax issues. Get to know Janet and Gary....

First of all, we care more about you and would like to know you better.  However, since you clicked on this link....


Outside of work, Gary is a golfer, boater, investor.  Now to the history...Gary Shellenberger is a graduate of the University of Missouri at Rolla (now MS&T) with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He started out his career with McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis working on the Space Shuttle design.  After putting up with the cold, ice and snow for a year, he was offered a position at Martin Marietta in Orlando in 1978.  Eventually he moved to Clearwater and opened his own firm.  This is where his accounting experience started.  Other small businesses asked Gary to help them with their taxes and books.  Finally, when Gary retired from the corporate world in 2001 he and Jan started their own accounting business.

Janet Shellenberger has an MBA from Florida Institute of Technology specializing in accounting and finance.  She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Missouri at Rolla (now MS&T) with a degree in Computer Science.  Her career also started at McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis where she worked on computer programs for the F-15 flight simulator.  Being married to Gary, and looking forward to warm weather and the ocean, and being offered a job at Martin Marietta in Orlando, she moved.  Jan worked at Digital Equipment Corporation for 15 years on computer systems and in management.  Finally she was recruited to Intermedia Communications, Inc. where over time, she became the VP of Sales Finance and Operations.  When WorldCom purchased Intermedia in 2001, she decided to exit the corporate world and start her own business with Gary.  

Jan and Gary both have been AARP TaxAide volunteers for ten plus years, doing taxes at no charge for families at AARP sites.  Jan volunteers for SCORE as a counselor and is a past Pinellas Chairperson.  Both are avid sailors, boaters.  Gary spends his spare time on the golf course, while Janet runs and bikes.  Janet has run over 20 marathons throughout the United States, including the Boston Marathon..
