Sharon Edwards

Admissions Coordinator

Sharon has worked for CooperRiis for over ten years and brings a unique and hands-on perspective to CooperRiis Admissions. Sharon previously worked as a House Advisor and a Lodge Advisor and understands prospective residents and their families needs better than anyone. The CooperRiis Lodge Advisors reside in the lodges with the residents; they essentially become their surrogate families while in residential care for their mental health recovery. 


Reflecting on Her time as a Lodge Advisor, Sharon shares, “My most rewarding experiences were the moments I spent with residents, supporting them through triumphs and challenges, and witnessing their aspirations become reality. This role also deepened my understanding of family dynamics. When I receive an admissions call, I can sense the anxiety in the family member’s voice, often a mother’s, but I also hear a profound love and concern; they seek help for their loved one. I empathize with their situation and am committed to the support and services needed for their mental health recovery.”

Sharon and her husband love cruise vacations. If you are on a cruise ship, look for Sharon and listen for her infectious laughter and big smile. Sharon may be the person next to you.
