A: Sunrise’s Principles of Service set us apart from all the others in the senior care industry. In addition, the great training that team members receive through Sunrise University sets us apart from others. We’re also unique because of our Reminiscence program and its emphasis on life enrichment and the use of Validation ® as a valuable communication technique.
A: I enjoy going to concerts, traveling and exploring new places with my husband and our extended family. I have fun anytime I’m with my friends and family, especially if it’s at the beach!
A: I have two favorite books that relate to my work. The book that inspires me as a leader is, Leading with Soul: An Uncommon Journey of Spirit, by Bolman and Deal. The other is Still Alice by Lisa Genova which tells the story of a young professor and loving mother and wife who journeys through life with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. My favorite movie is Love Actually.
