Get to know Sara


Meet the newest member of team Sound - Sara! Front office coordinator by day...hard working student by night! This wonder-woman can do it all!

Describe your role at Sound

I'm currently the office manager at Sound, and my tasks include onboarding new patients, scheduling for upcoming appointments, keeping the office nice and tidy, patient billing, faxing, and emailing. I love answering questions patients may have about our clinic!

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Thoughtful, passionate, devoted.

What’s your favorite part of the job?


I love interacting and assisting patients for both speech- language and hearing! And of course, having a blast with Melissa, Jody, and Nicole at Sound when they aren't seeing patients!

What led you to working at Sound?

A good friend of mine provided me with the connection and here I am!

What’s something about you that not many people know?

I love to read and paint. I'm also currently a graduate student studying early childhood special education and I intend on obtaining a second masters in communicative disorders to be a speech therapist.

What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list?

Visiting different cities across the U.S. and then the world!!

Where are we most likely to find you when not at work?

At SF State studying, trying out different restaurants in the city, or on the couch reading!

Before working at Sound what was the most unusual or crazy job you had?

My previous job taught me how to assist the director of logistics, customer service, marketing, and accounting all at once. Since they were short-staffed, I had to wear many hats simultaneously. 

Anything else fun to share?


I adore animals. Someday I'd love to live on a ranch and take care of rescues, including abandoned farm animals!
