Meet The Team
A good administrator will do any job simply because it is in the best interest of the residents to have it done! Sarah Montemayor is that person – and so much more. Sarah is the definition through the action of "resident-centered care."
Sarah came to Coventry House in 2004, the second year it was open. She started as a caregiver and, within a year, became the Assistant Administrator. Sarah learned every position before becoming the Administrator in 2007. Since that time, Sarah has guided Coventry House to a number of deficiency-free State surveys by keeping the community in compliance with State requirements for assisted living. Her leadership creates a strong team of caring staff, and the relationships built with outside providers and the community of Othello are outstanding.
Sarah has lived in Othello her whole life. In the years Sarah has been at Coventry House, she has married and had three children – always ensuring she was still "on call" through every event! She brings the same energy to her family and marriage. Her days start early and generally include a full day's work and at least three games or practices for the kids…with her cell phone close by for calls from staff!
Monica has been with Coventry House since 2004. A caring, compassionate person, Monica states that she loves being able to be part of Coventry House. After years of caregiving, Monica was allowed to be in a supervisory position. In August of 2021, Monica was offered the Assistant Administrator position she currently holds and performs with all the professional abilities she brought to her other positions. In this role, Monica is responsible for supporting the Administrator with all operation phases, including compliance and care standards.
Monica enjoys spending time with her children and grandson outside work and gatherings with family and friends.
Monica states she has learned a great deal working in health care and is grateful to be able to help others.

In her private life, Irene spends most of her time with her three boys, chasing them around the state with all their sports. She states she loves watching sports, especially football, baseball, and wrestling.

The RN in assisted living is critical, and Irene Gomez fills this role for Coventry House in every way.
The Supervisor system is part of what makes Coventry House work so well and run smoothly. Key caregivers were placed in these positions to become trainers and shift supervisors. Their professional expertise and excellent work ethic drive excellent care for our residents.
