Executive Director

“I have worked with Sunrise for more than eight years and have more than 20 years of experience in the senior industry. I enjoy forming relationships with the residents, their families and my fellow team members. As Sunrise team members, we receive a great deal of room to grow professionally. 

In my spare time, I like to hike, cook and spend time with friends and family.”

“My favorite part of my role as Director of Sales and Marketing is meeting with potential residents and their loved ones. When families share their needs with me, they trust me to act as their guide. I am grateful they allow me to be part of their senior living journey, and I am happy to be a reliable resource.

At Sunrise, our team approach is phenomenal. We all work together to bring joy to our residents every day. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends!”

Outside of work, I like to exercise or read.”
