“I began my career as a licensed practical nurse working at a local hospital. After continuing my education, I transitioned to Marriott Senior Living Community, which is now known as The Fairfax, a Sunrise Senior Living community. Through obtaining a passion in this field, I continued to work hard in order to take on a more administrative role here at Sunrise. In 2016, I was given the opportunity to serve as senior executive director, and I am very excited to continue living out my passion by serving our residents and living out the Sunrise mission.
My favorite part of my job here at Sunrise is the ability to change the lives of residents in need—physically or emotionally. I love being able to bring them joy and comfort at this point of their lives. I am so proud to work for a company whose mission aligns so closely with my passion for seniors.
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities and nature itself! My family and I frequently escape to the West Virginia Mountains with our four wheeler and enjoy camping and each other’s company.”
“I have worked at Sunrise since 2013. This industry has been a part of my life since I started out in my hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, working in the local nursing home serving water to residents. I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in this field, so I received my degree in health science with a concentration in assisted living administration while working as a concierge at a local CCRC. When I graduated, I worked as an activities assistant, which led me to my role in sales. Before receiving the opportunity to join the Sunrise at Silas Burke House team, I worked at our Leesburg and Hunter Mill communities.
My favorite part of my job is getting to help families with their transition to assisted living. I have always enjoyed working with people but have been particularly drawn to seniors. Sitting down with a family who has never been into an assisted living and acting as a resource is the most rewarding part of what I do. I love the relationships I get to build with families, residents, and team members. I have built long-lasting relationships in each of the communities I have supported. We are all in the Sunrise family, and you’ll always feel welcome when visiting a Sunrise.
I enjoy traveling in my spare time. My sisters live in San Francisco and Houston, so we love to get together any time we can! During the weekends, I love to go for bike rides on the trails in Arlington and love cheering on the Capitals.”
