Tom WalshThomas J. Walsh

Senior Maintenance Coordinator

“I came to work for Sunrise Senior Living in 1998. Before that, I worked for a 200-unit senior housing authority and was at that building for 15 years. I have always enjoyed working with senior citizens; I was very young when my only grandmother passed away. I never grew up with a loving grandmother, and now I have a whole building full of grandmothers and grandfathers (my grand-buddies) that I get to take care of each day.

I had a hand in opening every Sunrise building in Michigan, 14 in all. 

My dad gave me my best lesson on fixing things; he always told me that if a man put it together, a man can take it apart.  So I never give up on finding a solution.

I plan on finishing my working career at Sunrise. My wonderful wife just retired from public housing as an executive director and we enjoy our summers at our property up north. I love to deer and turkey hunt. I’ve been hunting for more than 40 years now. Life is good.”

Donna BackersDonna Backers

Dining Services Coordinator

“I have always had a passion for being a cook and a leader. Before joining Sunrise in 2014, I was a business owner.
I love working for Sunrise because I get to pursue my passion for cooking while providing our residents with the wonderful meals daily. I take every chance I get to interact with our residents and fantastic team—both in and out of the kitchen!

I married my high school sweetheart and love to spend time with him and our two kids. I also love spending my spare time outdoors and going to the gym.”

"I graduated from the University of Michigan with my Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Business Administration and from Walsh College, MI. with my Master of Science Degree in Accountancy.  Prior to working at Sunrise, I served professionally in the banking industry."

Working at Sunrise Senior Living is like being surrounded by family, friends and neighbors. My team at this community is very friendly and I am happy to be here.
