Vijette Saari

Director, Relationships + Solutions Candelen

What motivates you?

God gave me the heart of a servant and I spend my professional and personal time serving others. I feel the need to support people and I do what I can to fulfill this calling.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a child psychiatrist. My dad was a psychiatrist for the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital in Phoenix, and I spent my summers volunteering there. Although I loved my experience with veterans, I knew I wanted to work with children.
