Sarah Meyer – REACH Leader

Job Title: Vocational Case Manager

Work Experiences: For the past three years I have dedicated my time outside of school to working as an in-home caregiver and respite provider for those who have physical, mental, cognitive, auditory and/or visual disabilities. I began working with Feist VCP in January of 2021. I started as a job coach and have since transitioned into the new role of being a Vocational Case Manager for IRIS clients and long term supports as of March 2021.

More About Me:I love to celebrate the small victories! As a case manager and as a job coach, I am able to witness those small victories each and every day and it is incredibly fulfilling to know that the work I am doing is meaningful. In my free time I love to go kayaking, play with my cat, play video games, go camping, and explore the city!

Job Title: Vocational Coaches Manager

Work Experiences: I started my career in a shipping room at 18 and worked for the same company for 13 years. Throughout this time I was given the opportunities to learn and grow professionally with-in the company. After two years of Quality Auditing and efficiency training in the company I moved to Wisconsin to further my knowledge and career. In Wisconsin I worked as an Operations Manager for a uniform company and expanded on my management knowledge and experience for 4 years. While working as operations managers I was able to start job coaching part-time for Feist VCP. This is where I found my calling and passion for working with individuals with disabilities. After coaching part-time for almost a year I was able to transition to a full time role at Feist VCP, that would combine my experience and passion for management, team building, and working in the community, to help make a difference.

More About Me:I enjoy hiking and being in nature. I have a cat named Miles Davis who is 18. Sky diving is on my bucket list.
