Jeff Folsom.ED_HolladayJeff Folsom

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.”

Janessa ClarkeJanessa Clarke

Director of Sales

"I have been with Sunrise for 7 months, and my background prior to Senior Living was in Skilled Nursing Facilities where I was the Director of Marketing and Admissions for 2 1/2 years.

My favorite part of my job is that each day brings something new, new people to connect with, new challenges to overcome. It brings me so much joy to make personal and lasting relationships not only with our residents but also with their families, and providing direction and help to them in what usually are times of stress or heartache allows me to find purpose in my every day.

The best part of working with Sunrise are the people I work with and the support I get from my direct team as well as the support I receive from our corporate team.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading books, and it’s even better if it’s on the beach. My husband and I love to travel whenever and wherever we can, we have a pretty extensive bucket list that we are working on."

Chris Lyngle.DCD_HolladayChris 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 Sijon.CLD_HolladayVictoria 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."

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."
