Sunrise at Tustin

Meet the Sunrise at Tustin Team!

We’d love to introduce you to some of the members of our exceptional team here at Sunrise at Tustin, CA.

Tustin - DarleneDarlene Duarte
Director of Sales

“My favorite part of my job as the Director of Sales is being able to bring Sunrise to more families, sharing with them our philosophy of care and demonstrating the quality of life we provide for our residents. Being able to share memories with our residents and their family members is one of the many benefits of working at Sunrise. I consider our community my home away from home. 

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family and friends in both Orange County and San Diego and spend time with my dog, Nokona."

Abigail Rodriguez

Assisted Living Coordinator


“I am proud to say that Sunrise Senior Living is the first organization that I’ve worked for, as they’ve allowed me to grow within the company during the past nine years. My favorite part of my job is educating both families and the staff about our residents’ care, diagnosis and ability to thrive here at Sunrise. I know that the people with whom I work are committed to providing the best quality of life to our residents.  

In my spare time, I like going on spontaneous adventures with my family, my friends and my dog.”

Michael Rodrigues

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“I began my journey with Sunrise at Tustin in May, 2017. Prior to Sunrise, I worked as an Activities Director in Senior Living for fourteen (14) years. My favorite part of my job is being able to bring genuine and memorable experiences into a resident’s life. I’ve always believed it is in the little details of life that can truly make the difference, and being able to make those details larger than life really fulfills my own sense of purpose. 

The best part of working at Sunrise for me has to be the very residents themselves, as well as the opportunities I get to connect with them. The residents of Sunrise at Tustin are so witty and have such colorful personalities, and they do such an amazing job of making me feel welcome. 

In my spare time, I enjoy studying cinema, video production, and spending time with my wife and two pups, Riggsy & Olive."

Reminiscence Coordinator

“I have been with Sunrise at Tustin now for 12 years and I really enjoy my job as a Care Manager because I’m able to be hands-on when caring for our residents. My favorite part of my job is seeing our residents happy when they’ve accomplished tasks and are having a great day. Sunrise is a great working environment because the company takes care of its staff and works with our schedules, being considerate of our other responsibilities out of the workplace. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and going to the movies.”
