Executive Director

"My name is Heather Segura and I am the Executive Director for Sunrise at Canyon Crest. I started my journey with Sunrise in 2012, newly out of Nursing School, and eager to help the senior population. The moment I stepped into the doors of Sunrise Senior Living I knew this was home. My passion has continued to grow over the years as I serve our residents at Sunrise by working hard in leading this amazing team who create pleasant days, filled with love and purpose, and by providing the highest quality of care available. 

Sunrise at Canyon Crest is truly where my heart is. So being able to hear the residents’ life stories, see their smiling faces, and all their joy gives me great fulfillment, and keeps me dedicated to our family and all that we do each and every day!"

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.”

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.”

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"My name is Jakina Tate and I am the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator here at Sunrise of Canyon Crest. I started my career in senior living over 15 years ago as a Reminiscence Caregiver and Concierge at Brighton Gardens of Yorba Linda. I am honored to be part of the Sunrise family again. Some of my certificates are RCFE Administrator, Zumba Gold Certified and Ordained Minister. My calling in life is having fun with seniors; I love putting a smile on their faces. Just because seniors are older, doesn’t mean they can't have FUN! My favorite activities to do with seniors are Zumba, crafts, and cooking. When you come for a visit with your loved one, please stop by and say hi!

In my spare time, I enjoy going to church, dancing, and hiking."

Dining Services Coordinator

"Prior to working at Sunrise, I have worked as a Short-Order Cook and Café Manager. Similarly, I did my Culinary School training at the “New School of Cooking” in Culver City, California. My favorite part of cooking is challenging myself to write and edit recipes to figure out what makes different foods taste best together and to continue to expand my culinary abilities. I have been working at Sunrise since 2016 and I love working here because I am able to truly get to know all the people I’m cooking for, and get to hear all the amazing life stories from our residents. 

My favorite principle of service is Celebrating Individuality because we’re all unique and it’s a true joy getting to know people from all walks of life at a personal level."
