As an Independent Living Specialist at Able SC, Sarah is able to put her passion for helping people to good use. Sarah works one on one with consumers to reach goals towards living independently; she works with people of all ages, but her specialty is young adults. She goes into schools and teaches young adults how to become employable and independent. She co-facilitates the EQUIP hangouts and sits on various boards and committees as a voice for young adults with disabilities. She also coordinates the Steps to Your Health program, where she teaches consumers healthy living habits. She also steps in as needed with various other programs. Sarah used to work at an accessible van dealership and also tried her hand at telemarketing, but none of them spoke to her passion for helping the community. It was something she had always wanted to do. She started off as an EQUIP leader and showed her talent for assisting the youth. It wasn’t too long before she was hired on as an ILS. One of her other passions is writing; she wants to publish novels that bring more awareness to the disability community. She also has a strong love for animals and has been told often she houses a zoo.
