She worked mostly in local nursing homes during her career, although the favorite part of her career was the several years she spent working with Dr. David Pope in his family medicine practice and the Residency Program he founded. A type-1 diabetic herself since the age of 10, Sara was especially helpful with and loved by the geriatric diabetic patients in her care.
