Executive Director

“I started my career with Sunrise in 2000 as a server in the dining room. Since then, it has become a personal mission of mine to help those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.

Sunrise enables me to help our residents have pleasant days and their families have better visits through the company mission, Principles of Service and Core Values.”

Resident Care Director

"I have been a nurse for 7 years and I love getting to serve our residents! Every day the residents teach me something new as I continue to grow with Sunrise Senior Living! I always remain resident focused and make sure to provide the best care for our residents. When I am not at Brighton Gardens I like to spend time with my husband, Mike, and daughters, Cassidy and Hannah!"


Charity Paynter—16 years of service

Reminiscence Coordinator

“I have worked for Sunrise Senior Living for more than 10 years.  I served as a Designated Care Manager and a Lead Care Manager for 10 years, and was recently promoted to the Reminiscence Coordinator position.  

I have cared for my grandmother who has Alzheimer’s dementia, so I know first-hand how this disease can affect any family.  My favorite thing about working with the residents in our Reminiscence Neighborhood is that each day is a brand new beginning.  

My husband and I have two girls and one boy, and we love going to Florida and spending time with our family.”
