Katrina Cohen

Executive Director

"I joined the Sunrise Family in May, 2018. I’ve been an advocate for the geriatric population and involved in healthcare for well over 10 years. I’ve been in the long term care sector for the past four years where I was the Administrator for a privately owned community in Georgia. 

The favorite part about my job is that it’s no longer a job. I am doing what I truly love and enjoy, which is striving to deliver an optimal experience in assisted living for both my residents and their families. The best part of working at Sunrise is the residents. Each day is a new day and a new beginning to create something great and bring a smile to their faces. 

In my spare time, I appreciate spending time with both my family and friends. My two nephews, Landon Allen and Cohen Lee are my heartbeats. I also like to decorate and travel while trying out new eateries."

Resident Care Director

"I have been with Sunrise at Mt. Vernon since June of 2017. I started my nursing career in 1998 at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in the Women’s Surgical Center while also working with Seniors in a Long Term Care Facility. 

One of the best things about my job is my daily interactions with our residents and the team I work with. There is always something new every day. I was born and raised in Baltimore and love anything that has to do with the Baltimore Ravens. Currently I live in Bowie, MD and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband Leroy…watching the Baltimore Ravens!"

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"I joined Sunrise as a Life Enrichment Manager in January of 2018. In October, of the same year, I moved to the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator position. Everyday, I am committed to providing residents with a sense of purpose and giving them something to look forward to, whether it is a lunch outing, an art project or an exercise class!

I was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia and attended TC Williams High School. After attending college in Wisconsin, I move back to Northern VA. In my free time, I enjoy coaching field hockey at my alma mater."

Lead Concierge

“I have worked with Sunrise since 2013. I moved to Virginia from the Philadelphia area to take care of my youngest grandchild. After he started school, I decided to return to work. I begin my career at Sunrise at George Mason as a part time concierge. After a month in this role, I was promoted to my current position. I love every aspect of my job, especially getting to know the residents and family members. I enjoy coming to work each day and spending time with my Sunrise at Mt. Vernon family.”
