Founder & Owner

Emily Sahota

Emily has been a registered nurse for almost ten years. She started her career in skilled nursing where she quickly became a manager. She then moved to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital where she worked the float pool which provided for the utmost experience possible. She landed in pediatrics and postpartum and loved it. After having her own child, she needed a change in pace and went back to skilled nursing to work as a case manager. Emily loves dogs, looking at the clouds in the sky and, of course, her family!
