Director of Sales

Ruthie has been with Sunrise Senior Living for over 20 years as a Director of Sales.  This has been a wonderful place to meet wonderful people and make friends.  Helping families and perspective residents with very difficult decisions hopefully makes their loved ones transition a bit easier.  In that, she feels that she has received a second paycheck.  Ruthie feels that it's truly a pleasure and honor to work with each of our team members, residents and families.  During her off time, Ruthie enjoys working in her yard and gardens, boating and spending time with her son, daughter-in-law and grandson.

Ray Reyes

Maintenance Coordinator

Ray started his career with Sunrise as a Maintenance Assistant in 2001 at Sunrise of Bluemont Park in Arlington, VA. In 2002, Ray was promoted to Maintenance Coordinator at Sunrise of Arlington, VA and has held that position for Sunrise at Braddock Glen in Fairfax, VA in addition   Brighton Gardens of Tuckerman Lane in Bethesda, MD and Sunrise of George Mason. Ray joined the Sunrise at Bon Air Team in March 2019.  Prior to his 15 year tenure with Sunrise, Ray was a Project Manager for working as sub-contractor for the government accounts in Washington, DC, where he managed a crew of 55 employees.

Ray’s favorite part of  his job is when he makes a resident happy even if it is just by fixing his/her TV or changing their thermostat to make their suite more comfortable. Ray believes, the best part about working for Sunrise is the opportunities to gain knowledge, work related and personal. His experiences helped him to understand the value of aging in place and that helped him deal with the loss of his own grandfather and father. 

In his spare time, Ray likes to rest and work on home projects, yard work, planting and cleaning.
