*Core Chamber Events:

Meet Sarah, Our Director

A Massachusetts native, Sarah Simmers moved to Florida in May of 2006 pursuing her dream of working with animals. After a 15-year career in the zoological department at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, it was time for a change. “I’ve been able to have unique experiences most people could only dream about, but sometimes you realize the path you are on, and your life goals evolve over time.”

Sarah first visited Dunedin in 2007 and instantly fell in love with the town’s easy-going vibe and overall charm. “I’ve met some of my closest friends here in Dunedin who have become family, including my husband, Eric.” When she left Busch Gardens, she knew she wanted to leave the corporate structure and become more involved in the Dunedin community.

For a year after, Sarah worked for Dr. Cindy Culpepper, a veterinarian and Dunedin native, at Paws and Claws Animal Medical Center. “Dr. Culpepper and staff really showed me how much you can impact your community and what it’s like to be appreciated. Everyone is always supportive of one another and has a common heartbeat – to help people and their pets.”

When the position at the Hub became available, she knew she had to jump on it. “The Chamber is the embodiment of community and helping small businesses. Hard work and determination don’t always equate to success; they are only two tools in your toolbox. But if you add in a solid support structure of community assets, programs, advisors, and potential financial opportunities, you’re leaps and bounds ahead in the game. THAT’S what the chamber provides.” The Hub, which had its soft opening in February, is a coworking space above the chamber and is available to all chamber members. “The Hub is a small spot in the heart of Dunedin that allows big ideas to grow – and I get to lead that. I can’t wait to see who walks through the door next. Whether you are established or just building your business, we are here to help.”

In her free time, Sarah enjoys spending time outdoors kayaking, camping and off roading in her Jeep, which she has had for 19 years. She loves many of the local breweries, including the Dunedin House of Beer, which she is an emperor or as she calls it “empress”. She also has an affinity for collecting seashells, sharks’ teeth, cactuses and succulents and dangly earrings. “I swear every time I bring home another plant my husband just gives me this look like ‘seriously, another one?’”. Sarah and Eric live here in Dunedin with their two cats, Kai and Leila.
