Meet the BGTL Team


Francene Watson

Title: Activities Assistant

Why Activities: Activities enables me to interact with people, and know their likes and dislikes. With activities, I have fun while working and touching people’s lives. I love what I do.

Why Sunrise: I chose Sunrise because of the residents, fellow team members, and management. Our residents teach me new things not just about themselves, but about my work as an Activities Assistant. I am privileged to continue to be a part of their life, and to learn their respective likes and dislikes. They really are very kind and sweet.


Alison Peterkin

Title: Assisted Living Lead Care Manager

Why healthcare: I love working with residents in their care, problem solving, and staff training and development.

Why Sunrise: Sunrise gives me the opportunity to care for residents as it is embedded in the company’s Principles of Service: Preserving Dignity, Nurturing the Spirit, Celebrating Individuality, Enabling Freedom of Choice, Encouraging Independence, and Involving Family and Friends. I enjoy my time with the residents, especially those residents who might not have the immediate support of family members.


Ngozi “Blessing” Oni

Title: Health Care Nurse/Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)

Why healthcare: I love caring for people and seeing the sick progress to better health; their smiles are priceless.

Why Sunrise: Sunrise is a loving place to work. The fundamental belief of the company runs parallel with mine: Belief in the Sacred Value of Human Life.
