Director of Food Services
Julie’s passion is to cook! She experimented with her own aging parents and her three daughter’s with her food creations. In 2011 she professionally began cooking in assisted living communities. She soon realized she enjoyed preparing meals for the geriatric population – it gave her great satisfaction. One of her fondest memories was preparing fried chicken, coleslaw and potato salad for an individual making a very difficult transition into her new home. Her “favorite’ meal made her feel very welcome and she was very happy! This was a priceless moment for Julie as well.
Director of Activities
Sarah came to the Olympic Peninsula in 2015 to be closer to her family and happy she is here. She discovered her love of serving people while serving her country in the army for ten years and gaining experience as a customer service representative. Spending time with her son, nephews and niece are very dear to her. In her spare time, she enjoys working with her Dad in his commercial apple orchard. Sarah brings with her an enthusiasm to serve our residents and offer them the opportunity to socialize, participate and appreciate daily activities.
