Here is an interview with Sara to learn more about her:
Proud personal/family info.
I have an awesome and talented 8-year-old son named Rylan, a super smart and funny niece and nephew, and an adorable two-year-old goddaughter in Houston. I love spending time with family and friends, traveling, and anything outside (if it’s above 70!).
Before working for RRI/BLR, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
I was a librarian aide, which meant I was the person that re-shelved all the books that people returned or kids left on the floor and I put them back by alphabetical order. I spent a lot of hours there.
Best vacation spot you’ve been to?
Would have to say Maui and Kauai – beautiful beaches, amazing views.
Describe what you were like at age 10?
Carefree and naive! I loved my family and spent a lot of time with my grandparents. My brother and I would compete at every sport, and at that point, I would still win!
What aspect of your job do you like the most?
I love working with an amazing group of coworkers who I consider my friends. I also love helping patients regain their independence and find hope.
What is one thing on your bucket list?
I have several things on my bucket list, but I would love to visit one of my very best friends at her new home in New Zealand.
