Sunrise at River Road

Meet the River Road Team


Robert L Mechling

Executive Director

"While networking, I got to know the president of the Alzheimer’s Association in Utah. He spoke very highly of Sunrise Senior Living and their commitment to seniors. I specifically remember him saying that “Sunrise knows how to do it right.” I pursued Sunrise because of their reputation in the community, for being dedicated to quality care and caring for their team members. I love the way our residents make me feel with a hello, a smile or a hug. The worries of the day vanish for a moment and what we do is crystal clear."


Corrinne (Corey) Stacks

Health Care Coordinator (LPN)

"The most amazing aspect about being a Health Care Coordinator with Sunrise is getting to know each resident as an individual and becoming a part of their family. Unfortunately, I was unable to grow up under the watchful eyes of grandma and grandpa never knowing my grandparents from either side of my family. When I stepped through the doors to Sunrise, I truly felt at home and consider myself one of the luckiest gals in the world to now have so many grandmas and grandpas!

It gives me immeasurable pleasure to care for our residents and to be a part of a team that truly believes in the mission to “Champion the Quality of Life for All Seniors.” I have found my true niche in this world and I can’t imagine being anywhere else!"


Pat Krysiak

Reminiscence Coordinator

"When I first walked into Sunrise I noticed how beautiful it was, how nice it smelled and how friendly everyone was to me as a total stranger. I knew I wanted to work here! Now that I am part of the Sunrise family, the joy I get from being the Reminiscence Coordinator has changed my life. I use the company’s mission, principles of service and core values in my everyday life and I feel that I’m a better person for it."


Dora Carreon

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I’ve had a passion for working with seniors since I was eight years old. I truly enjoy coming to work every day and making a difference in the lives of our residents, families and team. What connected me to Sunrise is the team’s “belief in the sacred value of human life,” and seeing the team put the company’s principles of service into action each day. What I love about my job is seeing our residents happy and living with purpose, while our team members leave with a smile at the end of the day."


Elizabeth Sims

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"As the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator I have the best of both worlds. I get to use my creativity to bring activities to the residents that strengthen their bodies and activate their minds while making them smile. We have a great team here that works hard to keep the balance between what needs to be done and what is fun to do. When my day is over, I know in my heart that I made a difference in the lives of those who live here."


Marie Claridge

Business Office Coordinator

"I love working at Sunrise because I am surrounded by grandparents which I no longer personally have. I know what families are going through as I went through it with my beloved grandma, and this is my way of giving back."
