Outside the Office
Sarah has been married to her best friend, Nathan, for 22 years and they have 3 outgoing and independent children who are stepping into the world of young-adulthood. During the short (but beautiful) Minnesota summers, you will find her enjoying Jeep rides with Nathan and their goldendoodle. At home, you can often find her singing and dancing in their kitchen to the latest pop or praise and worship songs. (Ask her if she can do the “Running Man” and she will proudly display her skills with an enthusiastic “you betcha”!) Blessed with a perpetual joy for life, sense of humor and optimistic attitude, Sarah brings a positive energy to every situation.
SARAH VILMAIN - DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Ever since Sarah was a child she found herself drawn to the senior citizens in her world. Whether it was her own grandma, or an elderly gentleman at the grocery store, she was drawn like a moth to a flame. Having held various “jobs” throughout her early years while raising her family, she finally found her passion when she entered the world of senior living sales a decade ago. Due to her authenticity, natural ability to connect, and her genuine desire to help those going through life-transitions, she quickly found success. She helped move her Independent Living/Assisted Living/Memory Care community occupancy from 80% to an all-time high of 97%. She repeated that success in a Continuing Care Retirement Community growing occupancy from 83% to 98%. With a desire to continue to progress in her professional growth, industry impact and skills, she also served as a coach and mentor to other senior living sales professionals, working with a variety of communities across the United States.
Today, her greatest satisfaction is found in helping senior living organizations overcome the unique challenges that directly impact their ability to provide the highest level of care and service to those who live and work in their communities. Her heart’s desire is to see senior living organizations function at their highest level, giving residents and team members an environment where they can thrive in community, build relationships, and enjoy the best that the senior living world has to offer.
