Resident Care Director

"I have been working with Sunrise since 2012. I began as a wellness nurse and transitioned to the role of Resident Care Director in 2015. Working with our residents is incredibly fulfilling. We are able to provide many resources to manage our resident’s changing health needs. It is a pleasure to spend time with our residents and to learn about all their experiences and stories they have to share. They truly become a part of our family. Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our 3 sons."
