In this time of upheaval, with concerns about the health and well-being of our families, it is most appropriate to introduce an Arcadian that provides care for the immediate neighborhood, not just now but year-round.
Sarah Quinn is the founder, owner and medical director of Arcadia Wellness Center, a haven for those seeking a healthier way of life. The Center specializes in wellness medicine and personal care therapies. Their mission, “serving our patients better,” seems to say it all.
“I treat every person like they are my most important patient,” said Quinn, “and we focus on the families that live in the area; people we know and can relate to. It’s localism with love.”
Quinn was born and raised in Tucson, along with her two brothers and a sister. She knew early on that she wanted to go into the medical profession. “My mom was a nurse practitioner, so I got to witness her passion for caring for others.”
After attending Grand Canyon University and earning both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in nursing, she worked at Honor Health-Scottsdale and St. Joseph’s Hospital. After that, Quinn returned to her alma mater to teach nursing as an adjunct professor. “That allowed me to give back as I’m passionate about health and wellness and people,” Quinn said.
Her experience working in both hospital and clinical settings gave Quinn a perspective and understanding of the needs of various patients, and she has particular expertise in treating people with chronic pain and hormone imbalances and anyone wanting a healthier life.
Among many accolades, Quinn was named to the prestigious “40 under 40” list by Phoenix Business Journal and So Scottsdale Magazine’s “People to Watch” in 2020.
When Sarah isn’t tending to patients, she is caring for her growing family. A mother of three young children, she and her husband Ian stay extremely busy at home, juggling their careers with the responsibilities as parents and community volunteers. Sarah gives back by mentoring aspiring nurse practitioners and also serving as a Girl Scout troop leader and Hopi PTA board member.
“Our family loves the Arcadia neighborhood and all that it offers. We are constantly riding our bikes with the kids, and of course, a stop at O.H.S.O. is always fun,” says the woman whose self-professed superpower is “juggling everyone else’s schedules.”
Quinn also finds the time for personal adventures such as skydiving, competing in the New York Marathon and going on an African safari. “I believe in putting yourself out there,” Quinn said.
When asked what advice she has for young people right now, she said, “Every crisis resolves.” Not bad advice for all of us these days.
