Sally Kerfeld - Copperleaf
May 30, 2017
Sally Kerfeld has spent the past 20 years working with people in her community, and her new role as Executive Director at Copperleaf exemplifies that service. Her passion for helping people started when she worked at Ridgewater College, providing leadership for the admissions department, including recruiting and marketing, as the Director of Admissions. She's always had a passion for looking out for community members, but recently helping seniors hit home.
Sally’s mother moved in to an Assisted Living community a few years ago. A process that can be exasperating for families turned out to be a little bit easier because of the staff that worked with her mother and their family! This inspired Sally to help make the same transition she and her family went through.
“I remember thinking to myself, this is a job that I am sure I would enjoy.” Sally said passionately. Sally spends a lot of her free time as hospice volunteer and as a volunteer at her church, as well as traveling with her husband and gardening
