Hi! I’m Sara McDowell and I am the Director of Independent Living at SADI. I started with SADI in 2000 as an Independent Living Case Manager and have since then been involved in most programs offered by SADI over the years. I take great pride in the programs SADI offers and am constantly looking at ways to improve our service delivery, grow current programs, and add additional programs needed for our service area. The greatest thing about my job is that I (hands down) work with the greatest group of people on the planet! They are my family and we truly want our consumers to be and feel a part of our family!! Team is not just a word here, its how we live and its how we provide service. Outside of SADI, I am a mom of two teenagers, Randol and Lauryn. They keep me extremely busy with all of their extracurricular activities and I am a mom that wouldn’t change that for anything. I love animals and ice cream and I love to stay fit with exercise. If you ever have a question about what we do here at SADI, need assistance navigating the system, or you just need a friendly voice, I am always happy to speak to you and help anyway that I can.
