Sometimes, all the pieces of a puzzle just fit together. This was the case for Sarah Anne Dordel and her current position of practice manager with David W. Kim, MD Facial Plastic Surgery in San Francisco.

“I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and went to college at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, graduating in 1996 with a Spanish education degree,” explains Dordel, saying that after college, she next spent some time in South America using her bilingual skills to teach, before moving back to the United States in 1997, and settling in New York. “I got involved with the start-up, doing all kinds of things for them for the next three years—plugging numbers into spreadsheets, going to warehouses, doing graphic design and managing the in-house, digital photography studio,” she explains.

Feeling a bit burned out, Dordel traveled to Barcelona in 2000. “I got back to New York in 2001, and September 11 happened,” she says. “After that, I decided I wanted to do something more service-oriented, so I directed a nonprofit organization in the Washington Heights area of New York, and then ended up managing the office of a legal consulting firm.” Realizing she liked this work but not the legal industry, she switched jobs, becoming an office manager and patient coordinator at the office of Haideh Hirmand, MD, FACS, on New York’s Upper East Side in 2005.
