Michele Johnson

Executive Director

“I have been with Sunrise since 2012. I started out at our Simi Valley location and am happy to have moved to Sterling Canyon where I serve as executive director.

I love celebrating the individuality of our residents. There is something here at our community for everyone…all the live music is at the top of my list!

I feel so at home in the Sterling Canyon community—my son plays football for the Warriors and baseball at the Hart Fields.”

Healthcare Manager

“Nursing is my calling. I have been a nurse for more than 15 years, working in emergency rooms, skill nursing and rehabilitation facilities, and assisted living communities. I have been at Sunrise for more than 3 years now.

I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with seniors who have touched so many lives, including my own.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have been with Sunrise at Sterling Canyon for the past 11 years. Working with everyone here is such a privilege; I like to call the team my second family.  The best part of being the Assisted Living Coordinator is interacting with my residents on a daily basis and doing what I can to make them smile.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my husband and three children.”

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

“I have been at Sunrise at Sterling Canyon since 2016. I started as a Lead Care Manager at the community and am honored to have been given the opportunity to grow with the community to be able to share my passion with all the residents and their families truly warms my heart to see them happy.

My favorite Principle of Service is celebrating individuality. Each resident has an amazing story to tell and different life experiences that have molded them into the person they are today. There is so much to learn from and about each resident in our community, and it’s so exciting to come into work every day and discover those connections.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two amazing children and watching my son play baseball as a freshman at Hart High school."

Dining Services Director

“I have 37 years of cooking and restaurant experience and have been lucky to have spent my last 26 as dining services director at Sunrise at Sterling Canyon. I became one of the first dining services mentors at Sunrise and have traveled to many communities in the western region to assist with the training of new Dining Services Coordinators. I’ve also had the chance to assist with the grand openings of more than 15 communities in Southern California.

My wife, Beth, and I have been married for 18 years. In my free time, I love to surf, dirt bike, and watch my nephew play college football.”
