Lisa Barnes

Executive Director

"I am new to Sunrise as I began working for Sunrise since 2018, I previously worked for a LTC Community located in Eudora, KS. I come to Sunrise with 17 years’ experience in Long Term Care. 

My favorite part of my job is interacting with the residents. I also love working with my staff and watching them grow and learn every day. The best part about working at Sunrise is the culture of the organization. Sunrise actually believes in its Mission ( To Champion Quality of Life for all Seniors ). 

In my spare time I love to travel, listen to live music, I love trivia and enjoying the company of my friends and two dogs."

Erin Burke

Director of Sales

“I joined the Sunrise Senior Living team in March 2008 and have been at Brighton Gardens of Prairie Village since July 2014. I enjoy listening to families of future residents and helping with their care needs with empathy and kindness.  Helping seniors and their families is important to me and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to serve in this way.

The best parts of working at Sunrise are: the comfortable environment that we provide for those who live here, getting to work alongside a team that cares about the residents and their families and our pet-friendly policy.  It feels good to have our furry friends in the community each day, and it brings a lot of relief to those moving in that they can bring their beloved pet!

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, singing, dining out, listening to live music in a variety of venues, and spending time with my family and friends.  I have two grown children and three cats.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have worked at Sunrise since 2005. Before becoming the Assisted Living Coordinator, I worked as a Designated Care Manager, a medication care manager, a restorative aid, and as the Staffing Coordinator for Assisted Living.

I enjoy caring for our residents and taking care of family concerns to make sure my residents have the best day every day.

When I’m not at work, I spend time with my three children and my family. We like to go out to eat, swim and exercise.”

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“I have been with Brighton Gardens since 1999, when the building was first opened. I have a bachelor’s degree in education and a degree in recreational therapy and have been in this field for almost 40 years.

I love getting to know our residents and hearing their stories. I love that every day is a bit different and usually great fun. I don’t mind getting my morning kisses and hugs either!

Sunrise is a very good company with great benefits. It is a company whose values align with my own. I consider this building my home, and take personal pride in its success.

When I have a break, I love to travel, garden, swim, take photographs and read.”
