Sara grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY with her mother, Patricia, and Grandmother, Marie. Her Grandmother was a huge influence in choosing this field. Sara spent every summer with her Grandmother at the Poughkeepsie Senior Center. Her Grandmother ran the craft portion of the senior center for over 20 years. Sara helped run the craft tables every summer and school break till she was 15. Sara moved to Vestal in 1999 and graduated from Vestal high school in 2000. She then went on to BCC and graduated with an Associates degree in Applied Science and became a Certified Medical Assistant. While getting her degree she worked full time, was married, and had two children. Sara had spent 6 years right out of school in an orthopedic office in Binghamton. Most recently she has been the medical assistant to Dr. Colleen Crandell for over 5 years. During this time Sara’s Grandmother passed sudden and unexpectedly, after this she decided that it was her mission to figure out how to give back to the community like her Grandmother did. With help from Sara’s Dad and brothers, Abbie and Sara are giving another choice.
Abbie-Jo Abbott was born and raised in Glen Aubrey, NY where she still resides today. Almost all of Abbies immediate family still lives within 10 miles of each other. Family means everything to Abbie- Jo, and keeping the family together is the most important value. With family support, Abbie attended Broome Community College at the age of 18. She then landed her first medical assisting job with a well known Gynecologist in the area for 4 years. Gaining much knowledge in the medical field, but also learning compassion and care for all age groups. Abbie most recently has worked as a medical assistant alongside Sara and Dr. Colleen Crandell for 10 years. Through her many wonderful years in dermatology, Abbie listened to her patients and their families say over and over about their loved ones needing care when they weren’t home. In hopes to avoid nursing home care prematurely the only answer was to create an alternative tailored to the families as expressed over the years at the office. Her goal is to keep families together as long as possible. This opportunity wouldn’t have been made possible without the hard work and shared compassion of Abbie- Jo’s business partner, Sara Cook, and their families support.
