Amy Mitchell

Director of Sales 

“Prior to working at Sunrise, I was in the home respiratory and oxygen business where I had the opportunity to interact with many seniors.  After hearing all of the amazing stories, I knew that I had found my path. My passion is in serving our seniors.  

I love working at Sunrise because I get to see little miracles all the time, and I get to bring peace of mind to so many families.  My favorite Principle of Service is Involving Family and Friends.  

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my new grandson and the rest of my family.”

“During my 16 years with Sunrise at Canyon Crest, I’ve had the honor of meeting and learning from so many families and residents. It’s my privilege to be able to help them find the resources they need so their loved ones can have the highest quality care possible. 

When I introduce them to all of our wonderful team members, they understand just how well we champion the quality of life for all seniors.”


Tracie Edmonds

Healthcare Manager 

“I began working with the elderly at the ripe ole age of 16.  I started as a volunteer at skilled nursing homes.  I have worked in many different fields of nursing, but working with seniors is where my heart and soul is.  

I’ve been honored to be part of the Sunrise family for 16 years.  I truly enjoy what I do and look forward to coming to work every day.  My favorite Principle of Service is Nurturing the Spirit.  I love to sit and talk with our residents, listen to their stories and learn all about their lives.”

Viola Kaake  

Reminiscence Coordinator 

“I have more than 26 years of experience with Alzheimer’s Care.  I have grown so much with Sunrise since I started with the company 17 years ago. I have learned how to use the validation method and how to bring back a sense of purpose to our residents every day.  Our Reminiscence team is committed to helping our residents find purpose and meaning in their daily life through each stage of the disease process.  

My favorite Principle of Service is Nurturing the Spirit because that is the one area that the disease can never take away.”

Activity Volunteer Coordinator 

“I have a genuine passion for what I do here at Sunrise.  I’m always trying to come up with new ideas to engage the residents.  I truly have Joy in Service when I see the smiles on the faces of the residents and their family members.  

I love going out with the ‘Out to Lunch Bunch’ on Fridays.  We share a meal, we laugh together and we have a great time.  I have great respect for each and every one of them.  I’m thankful for the trust that they have in me to make our community a fun place for them to live.”
