Justin Ladd

Executive Director

"I have worked in senior living since 2008. I graduated from Western Kentucky University, in 2008 with a degree in healthcare administration and completed my MBA in 2015 at the University of Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky.

My favorite part of my job is seeing our team help residents find a sense of community and belonging, all while maintaining their independence. My second favorite part is knowing that what we do daily provides loved ones with a peace of mind. 

The best part of being at Sunrise is the fact that this company puts such an emphasis on training and development for the team members.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, learning new things, and traveling to new places!"

Laura Graham

Director of Sales

"I have worked at Sunrise since February of 2018. Previously, I worked as a Director of Professional Relations for a large health system in Tennessee.

My favorite part of my job is championing the quality of life for all seniors by working with our current and future residents and their families. The best part of working for Sunrise is knowing that I am truly helping families and their loved ones that are in that difficult transition period. 

In my spare time, I love to hike with my two dogs, and I enjoy Pilates and CrossFit."

Brighton Gardens of Brentwood Team Member BridgetBridget Archer

Director of Sales

“I’ve been working in the senior living industry since 2003 and spent three years as a pyschometrician for Alzheimer’s clinical trials. I joined the Brighton Gardens of Brentwood team after spending seven years as Director of Sales/Skilled Admissions for another Sunrise community in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Being in sales gives me the opportunity to help seniors rediscover a quality of life that comes with assisted living. It feels so good when a resident moves into our community and tells us that they wish they had moved sooner and that they are loving everything that we offer.  

Sunrise is a company with heart and a deep understanding of seniors and the aging process. It’s great to work for a company and team always wants what is best for the resident.
In my spare time, I love hiking with my Australian Shepherd, Abby.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I’ve been with Sunrise since the summer of 2018. I believe this to be my calling as the Senior Living Industry has been my life for over 30 years. I’ve had the pleasure of serving in many capacities from Director of Dining Services, Sales & Marketing to Executive Director.  

I love the interaction with the residents and families, knowing I’ve somehow made a difference in their day. Just a smile or a hug can go a long way. The best part of working at Sunrise is that we have a great team in place, and we all share the same compassion and caring nature. Being the best we can be and practicing the core values that make a difference each day. 

As with most women, I DO LOVE TO SHOP! My family is the most important thing in my life, and spending as much quality time with them as I can is when I’m happiest."

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"My name is Adrienne Innis and many of you have met me behind the desk at Brighton Gardens, but prior to nearly 18 months here, I spent most of my career developing retail businesses for various companies nationwide as an executive field manager, and as a consultant. I also spent several years as a wardrobe stylist to some of Nashville's brightest stars. No matter what phase of my professional life, I have always made it a priority to bring authenticity, humor, and joy into what I do. 

 In terms of my philosophy for Activities at Brighton Gardens, it centers around bringing the outside world into our community, increasing social interactions with others, and helping our residents find relevance and purpose in their daily life. It has been my absolute joy to build the relationships with residents and their families over the course of the last year and I look forward to more opportunities to serve you in the future. As your next AVC, I am eager to find ways to engage every resident at Brighton Gardens in some new way!"
