Executive Director

“I have worked with Sunrise for 8 years. Prior to working for Sunrise I was managing nursing homes.

My favorite part of the job is my team. They are absolutely incredible people with hearts of gold. It is such an honor to work with them and share in our mission to champion quality of life for all seniors.

The best part of working at Sunrise is the opportunity to build relationships with people and make a difference in the lives of so many. It fills me with joy and satisfaction to have such meaningful work.

In my spare time I love spending time with my wife and four kids. We love sports, music, art, the outdoors, and movies.”

Director of Sales

"I began my journey with Sunrise in January of 2018. Before that, I was working at a call center helping seniors with their insurance; this job was fine but I always felt like I was missing something. I wanted to help seniors with more than just over-the-phone needs, I wanted to be there for them during one of their most vulnerable stages in life. I wanted to help them with the same struggles I watched my own Dad go through until he passed. Then I found Sunrise and not only have I been able to help our seniors face to face, but I get the pleasure of taking the weight off their shoulders when they realize I can help and I am here for them and their family. The thing I love most about my job is being able to provide solutions to our seniors and their families whether that solution is through Sunrise or another resource. It is one of the most fulfilling experiences every single time I get to see our seniors and their loved ones feel happy and know that everything is going to work out. I will always feel so blessed that I get to help our seniors and their families navigate through this journey.

When I am not at Sunrise, I love being with my fiancé and our daughter. We love doing karaoke, trying new food, going to the Aquarium, the park, the movies, and shopping!  I also love helping others feel beautiful by doing their makeup and eyebrows! I have always done make-up on myself but as I've gotten more experience I have been able to do makeup for my sisters, cousins, and friends when they get married, go to prom, get pictures taken, or simply have a date night."

Director of Sales

"I just started my journey with Sunrise, but have worked in the industry for the last two years. Prior to Senior Living, I lived in Colorado where I did Marketing for a University. The best part about Sunrise is the love and care the Sunrise team provides to each and every resident, regardless of their condition. It is the most rewarding job to be able to help those in need in such a vulnerable time of their lives.

In my spare time, I love to travel and see new places with my husband and our dogs. I also love to be outdoors any chance I get."

chris lyngleChris Lyngle  

Dining Services Director

“I enjoy talking our residents about food; what they like, what they grew up with, what they used to make, what region of food they enjoy. Of course, I enjoy serving them the best food possible. At Sunrise, I get to play with food and see our residents enjoy the meals every day. Everyone is so nice when their stomach is full! Food is life. 

In my spare time, I like to sit on my boat, fish and work in my yard. I like to go to thrift stores and find a hidden gem and add to my collections.”  

victoria sijonVictoria Sijon 

Community Life Director

“Before joining our team at Sunrise, I worked as a therapeutic recreation specialist at a state adult psychiatric hospital.  Before that, I worked for Emeritus in South Carolina as the Activity Director in Assisted Living for 5 years.

My favorite part of my job is planning quality activities and seeing the residents happy and involved! At Sunrise of Holladay, the staff is irreplaceable!  Everyone is a team player, intelligent, kind, loving and really good at their job.  It’s a really nice work atmosphere.

Outside of work, I like to be active, spend time with my very funny little girl and learn new things with her.”

Business Office Coordinator

"I have worked for Sunrise at Holladay for 9 years, and I call this home.

My favorite part of my job is the interaction we all have with our residents, and being able to bring happiness and smiles. Our Team Members are incredible and are always going above and beyond for our residents. We make sure to deliver Our Principles of Service every day.

The best part of working for Sunrise is being able to grow within the company. We offer much growth for all positions and encourage advancement. I, myself, have had the opportunities and plan to thrive further.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending it with my beautiful and wild 2-year-old daughter and husband. We enjoy going horseback riding, and planning family events- as my family will find any reason to celebrate and cook."

Maintenance Coordinator

"I have worked for Sunrise since 2008 and I have 20+ years in the construction and remodeling field. 

My favorite part of the job is getting to know the residents and the amazing things they have accomplished in their lives.

The best part of working at Sunrise is knowing that I am making a difference in my residents lives and to see the smiles on their faces as I walk through the community.

In my spare time, I spend a lot of time on the many golf courses of the valley and I enjoy going on cruises every other year to the Caribbean."

christin watsonChristin Watson

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"15 years’ experience working with Senior Citizens. I am constantly growing! Of course with Sunrise training, but growing with all the wonderful people I have met along the way. Seniors are Libraries of knowledge and experience and I have the highest level of respect for them. Born and raised in Canada where I loved to fish and absorb a lot of Nature time. I moved to the USA 10 years ago because my husband is in the Mining business. Idaho, Arizona and now Utah has been this adventure. We have 3 children between the ages of 19 & 14. My hobbies are writing, keeping my animals happy at home and travelling. Broadening my Horizons is a never ending goal. That includes our children as well. They’re very busy and that keeps me pretty busy."
