We appreciate the opportunity to introduce you to a few of the many members of our extraordinary team who make our community so great.

Justin Smith

Director of Sales

“I love getting to know our residents and their families and aim to help them however I can. As Director of Sales, I enjoy solving problems that result in changing another person’s life for the better. Families often come to me in search of solutions to highly emotional issues and I’m grateful they feel comfortable enough to trust in me to provide a solution.

I wanted to work for the company that had the best reputation and consistently provided great care to my elders, now I do.  I love that Sunrise supports me in finding the balance of work and life.”

“Working with the elderly gives me special blessings.  The one-on-one time I am able to spend with my residents is fulfilling for me and for them.

Sunrise is not only a home for the residents, but also for me.”

Myriam I. Bachofer | Medication Care Manager

“My grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease.  She passed away without any of her family having an understanding of what she was going through.  Every resident I work with is someone’s parent or grandparent, and now I know how much I am needed.  Every laugh, every hug - even the tears - mean so much.  I’m not just working for someone; I’m coming into their home and becoming part of their life.

Sunrise has done and continues to do so much in educating me on Alzheimer’s and dementia.  This really helps me approach my job with an open mind and heart.”

Paula Sanford | Life Enrichment Manager

“My job is to unconditionally love and accept our residents.  I love to learn out their previous passions and reinvigorate those passions today. I also get to build strong bonds with families in our community.  There’s a lot of joy in my job.

At Sunrise, they encourage us to make a difference in the lives of our residents.  Sunrise gives me the opportunity to help seniors live their lives to the fullest, to find purpose, and to make a difference in their own community.”

"In my role as the Business Manager, I have the opportunity to sit and talk with our residents, get to know them and listen to their stories.  They really do capture your heart and become part of your extended family.  This is the part of my day that I enjoy the most. 
I didn’t choose Sunrise…Sunrise chose me!  When I walked into Sunrise of FlatIrons, I understood why others love this company.”

Respect is one of Sunrise’s core values.  No matter what your job is, you feel respected and that your efforts are appreciated.  That respect is apparent throughout the community, among team members and residents alike.”
