Sarah Tichy, BS

Senior Residential Advisor

“Good golly, I LOVE the variety of work offered to me at CooperRiis; no two days are ever the same; getting to know residents and walking with them in their recovery journey is such a joy. And I get to:

  • Plan weekend and monthly activities.
  • Spend quality time with residents and support them during good and challenging times, and watch personalities bloom when nurtured.  
  • Set up the lodge activities and outings.
  • And provide leadership support to the residential staff. 

Sarah worked as a first responder for California State Parks for nine years and as a Garden Assistant at a plant nursery.  
She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Food Science and a Minor in Ethics, Justice, and Policy at California State University in Chico, CA.
Sarah recently moved from California to North Carolina with her partner and their two cats. “We love the weather here, exploring the beautiful Western North Carolina Mountains, and have a relative proximity to the coast.”
