As the Senior Advisor at Bridges® by EPOCH at Hingham, Shari is responsible for all aspects of internal and external sales as well as outreach within our community. With a goal of developing and building supportive relationships with families, residents, clients, prospects, community organizations and referral sources, she is our go-to for providing education and support to all who may be searching for an exceptional memory care lifestyle, whether for a loved one or for seniors they serve.

According to Shari, this is her passion.
She states that she decided what her future career would be from growing up watching her mother care for older adults in her family when they no longer could. “This paved the way for me in regard to respecting our elders and making sure they receive the care that they have given to so many throughout their lives,” she said. “I am so grateful to have had my mother as my role model growing up because she has led me to a career path that is so incredibly rewarding.”
Shari has over a 10-year history in programming and extensive experience in dementia care as a Life Enrichment Director, Certified Dementia Practitioner® and a Certified Teepa Snow Personal Approach® to Care coach.
