Terry has been with Independence Health and Rehabilitation since March 2014. She earned her degree in Business Administration with a Minor in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin - EauClaire. After graduating, and realizing she wanted to pursue Healthcare Administration, Terry completed extensive courses in Healthcare Administration and Gerontology. Previously, she was with Benedictine Health System serving as Administrator/CEO of their Koda Living Community facility in Owatonna, MN. Terry enjoys working at Independence Health and Rehab in Independence, Oregon as their Executive Director because it brings her back to her roots of being an Administrator in a smaller facility, which allows her to be more involved with the residents and their families. In her spare time, Terry enjoys swimming and spending time with her granddaughters that live in Vancouver, WA.
Sara had 15 years of experience when she filled her current role in 2011. The Minnesota-native is a certified occupational therapy assistant with an associate’s degree from Lake Superior Community College. She has worked with patients of all ages but loves the group at Independence because, “there is always something to learn. They have so much knowledge and history and I just love hearing their stories.” She enjoys spending time with her three children.
