"I have been with Sunrise Senior Living for over 17 years. I am so honored to be a part of this remarkable and talented team of outstanding leaders.
Prior to my current role over eight and a half years of experience in the area of human resources, over 2 years of dementia care and staffing experience, I received my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in behavioral and abnormal psychological studies and became a Certified Validation Practitioner.
Travel is a hobby of mine. I have lived as a student in Europe and a teacher in China for 3 years total. My travels have taken me to 21 different countries. These experiences have given me so many wonderful experiences with adapting to different backgrounds and cultures. Now I enjoy bringing my husband of 7 years along with our 2 year old daughter on these adventures."
Lisa LoCascio Krohn has over 10 years of experience in Assisted Living Communities as a Registered Nurse and RCFE Administrator. She was previously with Blue Cross of California for 12 years and also worked in the Trauma Center at UCLA in the beginning of her nursing career.
Lisa’s passion in caring for seniors started with “Noni”, her Italian Grandmother. Together they traveled Italy, visiting with family and distant relatives in Noni’s hometown, Piemonte, in the Italian Alps. It’s from her Grandmother that Lisa caught the travel bug and she hopes to visit every continent as part of her bucket list. Trips planned for next year include England, Ireland and Scotland.
Lisa has lived in Thousand Oaks since 1987 and has two adult children, Jessica and Ricky, who are the absolute joy of her life. She enjoys Dodger games with Ricky and some good mother/daughter time with Jessica. In her spare time, Lisa loves to garden and has both a flower and vegetable garden. She is searching for the perfect heirloom tomato to grow to cook the perfect Italian sauce. Ciao bella!
A relative newcomer to Sunrise Wood Ranch, Martha holds a degree in Family and Consumer Science, which provided a comprehensive background in family living and parenting education, housing and interior design, food and nutrition and individual and family health leadership. At Sunrise she enjoys watching residents participate in social interactions, musical programs, outings and fitness activities and loves working at Sunrise because of all the smiles that can be found on both the residents and the employees alike.
When not at work, she enjoys competitive tennis, skiing, golf and other sports. Martha likes to travel and loves cooking and entertaining for family and friends.
"Prior to starting my career with Sunrise, I was a Manager at a local restaurant in Long Beach. While working there I often would assist my mom with caregiving for my grandma. The experience of having my daughter and caregiving for my grandma showed me how much I enjoyed caring for other people and making a difference.
Although I am new to Wood Ranch, I have been with Sunrise for 14 years at our Seal Beach community. My time at Sunrise has been invaluable with many memories, I am looking forward to bringing the experience I’ve had in all my positions to Sunrise at Wood Ranch and creating new memories.
I have embraced every opportunity that has come my way with a serving heart. Nothing compares to building relationships with residents and their families. I hope to encourage residents to live life to the fullest and looking forward in being part of their journey. Together we can make a difference."
