Brighton Gardens of Brentwood Team Member

Torrey Sheppard

Executive Director

“I have been interested in healthcare from a very young age. My dad works in the corporate office of a long-term care company in Parsons, Tennessee, and that gave me the opportunity to volunteer at various local communities as a kid. It seems natural that I ended up at Sunrise since senior living has been a big part of my life for so long.

Before working at Sunrise, I spent a few years building up a local community through resident-focused care. I led with my heart and was able to develop a strong team where everyone believed in one another. I brought the lessons I learned there with me to Brighton Gardens of Brentwood.

I love the relationships I have with fellow team members and residents. They fill my life with joy and laughter.

In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, traveling, and getting my hands dirty working on projects at home.”

My favorite part about my job is the residents and the relationships I have built with each and every one of them. Making them laugh and smile, making a difference in their daily lives is very rewarding to me. 
I love our core values, the way that we hire people and our Live with Purpose programming. 

I like to spend time with my family and friends outside of work, doing all sorts of different things along with crafting and doing my own projects. I also enjoy reading.”
