Sara has enjoyed a successful career in sales, marketing, and management. She has also volunteered extensively in the non-profit sector as well. Sara feels that A Place for Mom is a company where a passion for helping others, hard work, and integrity, come together seamlessly.
What I'm passionate about:
*No one ever dreams of having to place a loved one in a facility, but in the world of caregiving, this is often a reality. Not only is the person with dementia aging, but the caregiver is aging as well and being able to provide an increasing level of care over many years may not be possible. Planning ahead, visiting different facilities, and listening to other caregiver’s opinions will give the caregiver a greater sense of control when and if the time for placement should arise. Do not wait for a crisis to occur.

"It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
"When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better." -Pauline Kezer
"Excuse me... have you seen my sanity... I think I lost it!!" -(uncited)
A Note From Sara
"Service, compassion, and integrity are the cornerstones that guide my life and the attributes you can rely on when you work with me. I know how difficult it is to prepare for and make necessary changes in one’s own life or the lives of loved ones. I’m here to listen to your concerns, provide you with information about care options and aid you in making informed decisions for yourself or a loved one."
