At Sunrise, we can make a difference in people’s lives each day. The residents and team members become an extended part of your family. When you come in in the morning and you greet a resident as you would your next door neighbor, you have made a friend.
There are so many things I love about my job! I am fortunate to really get to know the residents on a personal and fun level. I laugh with them, talk with them, I go on outings with them and so much more. I am able to bring them joy with activities by allowing them to remember the things they loved when they were younger and remain completely independent. It’s the most rewarding job. I am doing something great with my day, every day. Not many people can say that.
The people I work with are irreplaceable and so amazing. We are a family, one with a common purpose and bond. I have never been so respected and appreciated at any other job. I can go to any of the other coordinators and always know they will support and help me in whatever I need, which is a rare thing to experience at the work place.
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children who are my proudest accomplishments. I love to spend time with them and take care of them. I adore cooking, especially Italian food and my favorite hobby is home interior decorating. I do some personal shopping for friends and I love it! I appreciate and love my friends and spending time with them, especially my old West Virginia University roommates.”
I can honestly say that cooking is my passion. When I prepare meals for our residents, my favorite Principles of Service are Enabling Choice and Nurturing the Spirit. It’s always a pleasure to see others smile. Not only do I love to cook, I enjoy caring for seniors as well.
