We’re pleased to introduce you to some of the exceptional team members who make Huntington Common a wonderful place to live.
“Prior to joining Sunrise, I worked for fifteen years at another senior living company as executive director, regional director of operations, and as an operations specialist. I love working in a senior living community on a daily basis—working with team members to assure that residents and their families have the best senior living experience possible.
Talking with residents at breakfast, joining them in activities, and responding to their needs and concerns are just some of the parts of my job that I love. For me, being part of a quality Sunrise team, providing excellent care and programs for seniors is the most rewarding part of working for Sunrise Senior Living.
Outside of work, I enjoy sailing and singing as a member of a local choral group.”
Director of Sales
“I’ve always worked in the home care and hospitality fields and feel privileged to be working at Huntington Common.
In my role, I have the opportunity to help seniors make that life-changing transition from their home to our friendly, active community. One of the best parts of working for Sunrise is that I can carry out the Sunrise mission of championing quality of life for our residents each and every day.
When not at work, I love to golf, bicycle, travel, and watch as many movies as I possibly can!”
Assisted Living Coordinator
“I have worked for Sunrise for more than a decade. My career here began as a care manager in our Reminiscence neighborhood. Throughout the last ten years, I have worked as care manager, Reminiscence lead care manager, medication care manager, lead medication care manager, before taking on my current role of assisted living coordinator in February of 2015.
This role has allowed me to build relationships with our residents and their family members. I feel I am fortunate enough to work with some amazing people. I do not consider them co-workers, I consider them my second family.
I spend my time outside of Sunrise with my three children and my husband. I am also working on continuing my college education.”
Director of Sales
“I joined Huntington Common as a director of sales in 2012. For much of my career, I have worked in the hospitality and healthcare fields. My heart seems to belong to senior living—I return to it time and time again.
I have found my home helping people find their homes. I love being the person who can give seniors and their families hope, understanding, and support in this new phase of their lives.
It sounds silly but I used to work for a competitor senior living company in Virginia, where Sunrise headquarters is located and thought about working for Sunrise all the time. Sunrise has always been the innovator—the best at senior living. Many years and a few moves later, I finally got my wish and work at the most-homelike, loveliest Sunrise community I know.
I spend my spare time with family, friends, and my pets. I enjoy cooking and entertaining.”
See what some of the Huntington Common team members say about life at our community:
"I am happy to be at a place where not only do I love working, but I could retire here…literally! What a blessing to work in an atmosphere where you feel like your coming to see family every day, in a beautiful environment."
"A job has to feed you in many ways and my job as the Dining Director at Huntington Common does just that….feeds me in so many ways. It feeds my passion by allowing me to create the best dining experience possible for our residents, it feeds my heart by allowing me to do what I truly love to do every day, and last but not least it feeds my soul to know that I have joined my fellow team members in enhancing a resident’s day."
"I am fortunate to have worked at Huntington Common for the last 19 years. The residents are great and the team is a joy to work with. It’s not often you find a job you love to do in your own hometown where you grew up. So many people in Kennebunk had a positive influence on me while I was growing up. A number of them - teachers, neighbors, coaches and even my mailman have moved into Huntington. It is rewarding to provide a safe and secure home to those residents I have known since childhood as well as the new friends and families I have met along the way."
"The true significance in life comes through relationships. Working at Huntington Common allows me to plan and create significant moments for people and that makes me feel useful."
"I feel thankful every day to be able to come to a job I truly enjoy. Working with our residents allows me to always be learning from the wisdom they impart. I appreciate being able to look into their eyes, to listen to their life stories and contribute to their quality of life. The location of my office affords me a view of our residents and their families sitting on the front porch in the afternoon sun. I can’t tell you how warm that makes me feel as I reminisce about my own mom and how much she loved the sun. I come from a large family and I look to our residents as well as my fellow team members as my extended family. Thank you for the gift of yourselves everyday!"
