Meet Sherrif Sambou, owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of Everett

CAREGIVING IS IN HIS DNA

Sheriff has an interesting story that beautifully blends his inherent cultural gift of caring for others with his dual college degrees of nursing and economics into reaching his goal of owning a home care agency.

From Africa to the US

Sheriff grew up in Africa where he earned his nursing degree directly after high school graduation.

He struggled a bit with the decision to become a nurse because he also had an affinity for economics. While you might think these two disciplines are polar opposites, continue reading to learn the opportunities that led them to pair into a fruitful alignment for Sheriff.

His story began after graduating from nursing school and traveling to the U.S. where he applied to become a registered nurse. He absolutely loved being a nurse and caring for others. You can imagine his elation when he was accepted as a licensed nurse in the U.S. 

The RN entrepreneur

During his job search, he saw an opportunity (think economics degree) and opened his first business—a travel agency that catered to agencies that employed traveling nurses. His economics brain told him that while marketing his travel agency, he could also learn where nursing jobs were, hoping to land one soon which he did but not at an agency—as a critical care nurse at a local hospital. Unfortunately, when the economy crashed in 2008, he had to pause the travel agency.

When 2010 rolled around and the economy was beginning to recover, still employed by the hospital, he reopened the travel agency and decided to return to contract work.  

In 2011, he decided to open a CNA training school. The school allowed him to continue helping in the health care industry while also connecting him to many hospitals, staffing agencies, etc., that were looking for CNAs to hire. It was another way for friendly Sheriff to meet more people in the industry and who just might have a lead on a job for him!

Home care when and how you need it, wherever you call home

Fast forward to today and he now owns and operates a travel agency that caters to nurses, a CNA school to create compassionate and capable CNAs and a home care agency to provide compassionate care. Sheriff is probably one of the most connected people in health care in Everette, WA. He knows where the jobs are, he knows the staffing agents and many hospital discharge managers.  Sheriff manages all of this and keeps his shifts at the hospital to ensure he remains vital in the community.
