Executive Director

"I earned my Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Toledo. I have been working in long term care for the past 20 years. Initially as a social worker in long term care, until I became an executive director in 2008. I have worked in skilled nursing as well as assisted living and memory care. 

I have 3 children- Courtney, Seamus and Keira, a son in law- Jeremy, 2 dogs, Molly and Hadley and 2 grandchildren, Aiden and Blake and 2 grand-dogs, Drogo and Freya. Previously, in a senior leadership role, I spent most of my time traveling to different areas and away from home. 

While I enjoyed training and helping in a variety of places, I missed my family and the day to day connections that came from being in one community. I wanted a place that felt like home, and I have found that at Brighton Gardens. I am so happy to be here!"

Director of Sales

"I have worked at Sunrise since September 2019 and I have been in the Senior Living Industry for over 3 years.  I also owned a catering business for 20 years and I enjoyed cooking for my senior customers!

My favorite part of my job is getting to know all the residents and their families. They have amazing stories to tell and have done unbelievable things and have so much to share. I love the feeling of moving a new resident in and knowing that they are going to be taken care of and be a part of a community. 

The best part of working at Sunrise is the sense of team we all have.  Everyone jumps in to help in all departments and I think that just really benefits the residents.  I also really like all the training I am getting.  I know that I am well prepared to do my job every single day.

In my spare time I love to spend it with my daughters.  They grew up way too fast and I’m trying to enjoy every minute with them.  I also adopt senior dogs and dogs on hospice.  I make a bucket list for them and we try and check all the boxes!"

Resident Care Director

"I have been in nursing for 26 years and have enjoyed working in various health care settings including rehabilitation and nursing education. I oversee the Wellness Department and staff which includes the nurses and the medication care managers. I have been with Sunrise for one year and appreciate the breadth of expertise and commitment to the health of well-being of our residents Sunrise provides. 

I cherish the relationships I have forged with the residents and their families (which is my favorite part of my job) and relish any time I can sit and visit with the residents. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, and two Golden Retrievers who love to come and visit with the residents any chance they get."

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

"Building relationships with residents during activity sessions bring joy to me every day. The best part of working at Sunrise is the opportunity to learn and grow, through interacting with the residents. There are so many good stories and life experiences that I have learned from in the time that I have been here. The residents continue to make me a better person.

 In my spare time, I love to camp, kayak and enjoy the outdoors. One of my goals is to visit every National Park in America."

Reminiscence Coordinator

"I have worked in this field for 22 years. I have been with Sunrise since June 15, 2020 but I worked for this company prior for about 5 years. I am committed to maintaining the highest standard of care for our residents. I consider myself fortunate to have been given this opportunity to take charge of this program. This offers me new and exciting challenges, all of which I am looking forward to. My passion for seniors and learning more about cognitive diseases continues to grow. 

My main goal every day is to let our residents and their families know how much they’re loved, and to help provide them with the quality of care and life they deserve! I love working for this company because we hold ourselves to a high standard. Sunrise is passionate about doing the right thing for the resident we house. In my spare time I like to binge watch Netflix, cook, and socialize with friends."

As a senior dog myself, I enjoy naps on the couch, slow walks outside, greeting everyone who walks thru the door and supervising bingo during game time.
