“Prior to Sunrise, I worked as a medical-surgical nurse for older adults at the Washington Hospital. I also did my internship at Sunrise Senior Living in Arlington, Virginia. I love working at Sunrise because it allows me to care for all my residents, just as I had cared for my late father; it is rewarding to know I’m making a difference.
“I have been with Sunrise since November 2015. I became a CNA in 2004 and an LPN in 2008. When I became a registered nurse in 2010, my first nursing job was in the Newborn Intensive Care. From there I transitioned to Adult Intensive Care for three years until I became the director of nursing at a 170-bed assisted living facility in Duluth, MN. I was there for two years before coming to Maryland.
As RCD, I love forming these amazing relationships with the residents and families. Every day is such a gift and I’ve learned immensely from those I care for. I love being able to learn from those who are older and wiser than myself. They all have so much to share with us if we are willing to sit down and listen.
I enjoy the family atmosphere here at Sunrise. The people are friendly and anyone who comes here can feel that everyone who works here does it because they love it. Everyone cares for one another which in turn makes it so much more fulfilling to care for the residents. The learning and training opportunities are endless and I can feel confident that I work for a company whose values align with my own.
