Sara Calandrella, Speech Language Pathologist, Braxton Health Care Center

Braxton Health Care Center’s Employee of the Month for August is Sara Calandrella. Sara is a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) at BHCC and has been an employee here for over a year. Her job is to provide to treatment to residents to help them regain their speech, language, and swallowing abilities with emphasis on cognitive impairments.

She almost went into nursing but had a pull towards social work or the science field. She felt SLP was a combination of all of her interests and passions. The patients are what keeps her energized at work. “There isn’t a day since I started working that they don’t put a smile on my face.” When she’s having a bad day, Sara likes to eat some candy or play some cheerful music. On the weekend or in her free time you can find her relaxing at home or adventuring to a new place with her boyfriend, Andrew. Three words/phrases used to describe Sara are compassionate, goofy and motivated. When asked to tell us something most people don’t know about her, she states, “I don’t eat any red meat and haven’t for about 15 years.” 

BHCC is so fortunate to have Sara on our team. She is essential to our resident’s well-being and she improves their quality of life. Thank you for all the protection you offer our residents and staff.
