Sarah Buckels, RN, is the Occupational Health Coordinator with Mary Greeley. The COVID pandemic hit Mary Greeley’s staff hard – regarding what was needed to treat patients and how to manage their personal health and safety. Sarah was indeed on the front lines when it came to helping staff. She helped team members who tested positive for COVID-19 understand what they needed to do for their safety and the safety of their co-workers and patients. 
She was vital in administering vaccines for staff, including coordinating COVID and flu shots. She answered countless questions from staff about vaccines, symptoms, exposure risks, and more. It was stressful, exhausting work that Sarah always did with a smile. Her always-upbeat attitude contributed to Mary Greeley’s staff’s ability to weather the worst days of the pandemic. 
Sarah captures the meaning of Rotary’s “Service above Self.” Sarah serves with her heart and always puts others above her own needs. She is dedicated to her work and is incredibly innovative in her ideas. Mary Greeley’s COVID vaccination clinics are a great example of her efforts. She helped coordinate these clinics, helped design the space, and took the lead in them to ensure they operated smoothly.” 
In 2021, her efforts earned Mary Greeley’s Innovation & Excellence Award for Nursing. Rotarian Sarah Buck sponsored Sarah with the award.
