Stephanie Herm

Executive Director

“I have been with Sunrise since 2008—serving as an executive director since 2010. I previously worked in a nursing home in Pennsylvania as a dementia program manager, and prior to that, I was interning with a gero-psychologist working on non-medicinal interventions for seniors with dementia who were experiencing challenging behaviors.
I really value the feeling that I can make a difference every day in the lives of our residents and team members.  I love doing Current Events Club with the residents in assisted living and trivia or sing along with Reminiscence. I also enjoy team member training and continuing education—especially when it comes to behavioral expressions and expressions of unmet needs.

There are so many great things about working at Sunrise! I love our Sunrise signatures; my favorite one is community pets. We have two dogs at our community, Maya and Charlie. Both were rescued from local organizations and have become a part of our family at Orchard.
I like to spend my spare time hiking, traveling, and with friends and family.”

“I’ve been with Sunrise since 2013 and I still love meeting our residents’ needs and requests, big and small. I truly believe that when you do what you love and receive praise, it’s not a job or career - it becomes a labor of love. My motto? If we have it in house, you can have it - even if it’s not on the menu! Having worked in the industry, Sunrise just “gets it.” Here we put our residents’ satisfaction first.”

“During my time at Sunrise since joining the team in 2007, I have learned to embrace the phrases “Yes is the answer, now what is the question?” and to “assume the best intentions.” Working with seniors has been extremely rewarding. I consider it a great honor to be here during this point of resident’s lives, helping them to have good days.  

Sunrise is the first company I have worked for that actually lives their mission statement. It amazes me that in a world driven by corporate profits, there are companies like Sunrise who empower their people to do what is right and put the resident first! I’m proud to be a part of the Sunrise family.”
