Sunrise at Countryside Team Member Linda

Linda Craun-Lugar

Executive Director

“I have worked in the senior retirement/assisted living world for more than 23 years. I have experience with many different areas, including operations, marketing, and clinical oversight.

Working at Sunrise means being part of a family where all of the family members take care of one another. I am committed to creating a positive day for each resident, and I am excited to come into work and know I am a part of this family of serving hearts.”

Sunrise at Countryside Team Member Katherine

Katherine Rau

Director of Sales

“Working at Sunrise of Countryside makes me so proud. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to help others, and after studying geriatrics, sociology, and human ecology at The Ohio State University, I quickly realized my heart was at Sunrise Senior Living.

Sunrise has a clear mission to champion quality of life for all seniors. Everywhere you turn in our community, you see our team members living out this statement. I am lucky to work for a company that is so focused on bringing such a noble mission to life.”

Kelly Troutner, RN

Resident Care Director

“I have always felt a calling to help ensure our senior population receives the care, respect, and quality of life they have earned. Sunrise of Countryside is a perfect environment to do my life’s work and fulfill my passion.

I like to live out our principles of service in my role and in life, as I know that following these guidelines helps me to grow both personally and professionally. I always come into work smiling, knowing that I am contributing to the smiles on our residents’ faces.”

Sunrise at Countryside Team Member Ann

Ann Creech

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“When I started working at Sunrise of Countryside 19 years ago, I never anticipated being here for this long. I’ve worked in many different roles during my time at Sunrise, but I’ve realized it doesn’t really matter which department I work in or what my title is; I just want to make a difference in someone’s life, and Sunrise allows me to do that.

Putting a smile on a resident’s face means so much more to me than a paycheck. I live to serve our seniors, and it is so rewarding. Sunrise is an extension of my own family, and working here makes me feel like I’m at home.”

Sunrise at Countryside Team Member Shirley

Shirley Moobe

Assisted Living Coordinator

“Fifteen years ago, I began my career with Sunrise as a care manager in assisted living. Since then, I’ve held various roles throughout our community, but the one constant has been my love of working with seniors and sharing my passion for their well-being with those around me.

I firmly believe in Sunrise’s mission to provide our residents with quality care, well-trained team members, and a safe environment. I look forward to my continued growth and development with Sunrise of Countryside.”

Sunrise at Countryside Team Member Gilbert

Gilbert Lewis

Dinning Services Director

“I began working as dining services director four years ago and brought with me several years of culinary experience in healthcare. Sunrise’s menu provides our residents with a variety of choices, and I enjoy the opportunity to involve the residents in our dining experience as much as possible.

I cherish interacting with our residents and team members every single day. Working for Sunrise Senior Living has given me a passion beyond the work place, and for that, I am very grateful."
