President

Sara Atkins

Thirteen years ago Sara entered the food allergy world with the birth of her first child. As each of her children were born, she became more involved in the food allergy community and from within her own Jewish community would receive calls almost daily from someone needing help. She continued helping families within her community understand allergies, help them network, and get to know their new normal. She has also received a Pennsylvania state clearance for volunteer work.  With the diagnosis of Tourettes, OCD, ADHD, etc.. of her oldest at seven, she became actively involved in the Tourettes community, again, helping people in her own community understand their new normal. Her oldest daughter in the fall of 2013 was diagnosed with Idiopathic anaphyalxis. This started her family on a journey to find a Service Dog for her daughter. After a long search, Sara’s family found Angel Service Dogs and in Aug. 2015, Bravo joined her family. Wanting to help more families find their special angel after seeing how life changing Bravo was, Sara became more involved in ASDi. She eventually joined the board and became Board President.
