Welcome Sarah Gasaway, Executive Director

Leadership at Cappella of Grand Junction Sarah Gasaway, Executive DirectorWe’re thrilled to welcome Sarah Gasaway as Cappella of Grand Junction’s Executive Director. Sarah joined the community in May 2023, bringing with her a career’s-worth of experience in social services, hospice care, and dementia programming within skilled nursing settings. Sarah became an Administrator for assisted living settings in 2020 and has served as an Executive Director ever since.

After graduating from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and International Relations, Sarah says, “I didn’t know what I wanted to do other than help others. I started out in social services and quickly found my passion working with older adults.”

Sarah is passionate about honoring and celebrating Cappella of Grand Junction residents. “I love learning something new every day from residents and families. Residents have so much life experience to share, and it’s important for it to be acknowledged, validated, and passed on,” Sarah shares.

She also looks forward to making the holidays special for the whole community. “I make it a point to show residents they are loved and appreciated,” she says. “One year, I dressed up as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve while I was 7 months pregnant, and I went room to room to deliver personalized gifts to each resident. I even had some join me as ‘Santa’s helpers’ to deliver gifts of their own to other residents. It was so much fun to see the joy and happiness it brought to our community.”

When Sarah is not at Cappella of Grand Junction, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 2-year-old son. Having lived in many countries, including Venezuela, Ghana, and Egypt, she also loves to travel.
