Innovo Detox is proud to announce the addition of Sarah Herr to our business development and outreach team as our newest Community Outreach Specialist! Sarah comes to Innovo Detox after several years of experience working in business development and outreach roles for several larger behavioral healthcare and addiction treatment organizations.
Sarah graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor of Communication and Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations and a minor in Political Science. She began her career out of school, working in government as a Research Analyst for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Wanting to find a way to directly help individuals dealing with substance use and mental health disorders, she entered the behavioral healthcare field. Working in the area of community outreach, clinical outreach, and professional relations, Sarah has held the roles of Treatment Placement Specialist and Business Development Representative. During her time at previous organizations, she has worked to generate new referral relationships throughout the state of Pennsylvania while growing and enhancing her organization’s footprint through strategic and creative outreach initiatives.
In addition to her career in addiction treatment and business development, Sarah is also extremely passionate about helping others and serving her community. She belongs to numerous organizations, including being the Business Development Co-Chair of HEAL PA (with her two-year term beginning in January 2023), a Manager of Ambassadorship with WeHealUS, a board member for the Suicide Prevention Alliance, a certified QPR instructor for suicide prevention, and a 2023 Cohort for EMERGE PA.
“I am thrilled to welcome Sarah to the Innovo Detox team!” said Innovo Detox Director of Business Development Morgan Pagels. “Sarah has an instinctive desire to serve her community and improve people’s access to care. I look forward to watching Sarah strengthen existing relationships and develop new partnerships in the Central Pennsylvania region.”
In her new role as Community Outreach Specialist at Innovo Detox, Sarah will work with Director of Business Development Morgan Pagels and the outreach team to strengthen existing relationships with professional partners and providers, community and government organizations, and continue to be a resource for individuals and families in need of vital treatment and recovery resources. Sarah will also be an important conduit between potential patients, families, and referring organizations and the onsite admissions, medical, clinical, and continuing care teams.
Asked about joining the team at Innovo Detox, Sarah explained, “I am very excited to be a part of a team with so many empathetic and caring people striving to help those in need. I look forward to working with other professional and community partners and the team here at Innovo Detox to provide top notch care to patients.”
