    Meet Your Executive Director:

    Sara Humphreys previously served as regional director of operations overseeing 11 communities in six states. She was drawn to senior living after having seen first-hand the positive impact it had on both of her grandmothers.

    What Brought You To Benchmark:

    One of my grandmothers lived at a Benchmark community in Stamford, Edgehill. I was so impressed by her experience there that I jumped at the opportunity to open their first Westchester County community.
