2017 EPC Nominee: Veronica (Ronnie) Sauro

Veronica Sauro EPC


Veronica Sauro of Vaughan, ON, was nominated by Norma Trivino

Veronica (Ronnie) Sauro is originally from Chile but she has lived in Canada for 26 years. She is an accountant by trade but her passion to help others superseded her financial career aspirations. Her struggle to find adequate care when her mother was ill was the catalyst towards entrepreneurship. In 2011, she opened her own business, “Ronnie’s Home Care Services” a professional, full service, non-medical home care service provider dedicated to administering compassionate care to seniors. Ronnie acquired compassion and empathy from her own experience as a live-in nanny when she first came to Canada. So now she pays it forward by offering free community information sessions related to the care of seniors. She also hosts free Lunch & Learn seminars targeted to the “sandwich” generation identified as those who have both children and parents to take care of. Once a year, her and her staff host free Christmas events with interactive sessions led by youth, at churches, retirement homes, and seniors clubs. Not only is Ronnie giving back to the community through her company but she is the driving force behind youth volunteers in the community. Her desire to instill the value of volunteerism in her staff begins on the first day of employment when she asks them to agree to volunteer one day per year as part of their employment contract. Ronnie has come a long way from being a nanny to being a socially-conscious business proprietor.
