Meet the Brighton Gardens of Omaha Team

Brighton Gardens is built on a commitment to our residents and their families. We believe no two people are alike, so the services and attention we provide should never be exactly the same. That’s why we also offer a variety of lifestyle, service and care options. By providing these choices, we not only offer solutions for today, but we provide the security of knowing that there are options for tomorrow.

Executive Director

“I love having the ability to make a direct impact on the quality of lives of our residents, their families and our team members. I chose Sunrise because the Sunrise mission, core values and principles of service strongly align with my own personal values. Sunrise has been the trendsetter in quality standards of senior care that other communities attempt to mimic, and I want to be part of that mission. It is difficult to find a company that is driven by the quality standards Sunrise Senior Living sets so I am proud to work for a company with such a proactive and quality-driven culture.”
