Julie Lane team member profile

Julie Lane

Executive Director

“I have worked with Sunrise for six years, and have worked in the senior living industry for a total of 16 years. I held various roles in independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing. 

I love interacting with our residents and seeing team members grow within the company. At Sunrise, the company culture sets us apart from other organizations.

When I’m not at work and the weather is nice, I ride my motorcycle with friends. I also love going to the shooting range.”


Jon PhillipJon Phillip

Director of Sales

"The Healthcare industry has always been a part of my life. From an early age, I remember watching my Mother grow in her career within the industry. I was inspired to have met some of the men and women who she had helped provide services for. The positive impression left on the individual and the individual's family, is what pulled me towards following in my Mother's footsteps. My initial stages began within the Home-Care industry, followed by a transition to Home-Health & Hospice Sales. Sunrise Communities were always on my list of accounts to visit. I enjoyed the sense of Community, and friendly atmosphere that Sunrise had always provided. Eventually, I felt the pull to become a part of the Sunrise Organization. It is equally rewarding to witness the healing process, as it is to be a part of it.

In my spare time, I enjoy trying new foods, singing oldies, going to the gym, and traveling to new places."


Sunrise of Alexandria Team Member JulietteJulliette Jones

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have been working for Sunrise for since 2000. Besides working as assisted living coordinator, I also have experience in med-tech.

Caring for the residents, ensuring their dignity is preserved, and communicating and interacting with families face-to-face makes my job incredible.

Sunrise allows me to be versatile. Although my role is assisted living coordinator, I’ve gotten experience in many areas because everyone in the community collaborates as a team to ensure the highest quality of life for our seniors is being met.

In my spare time, I enjoy cleaning, cooking for my family, and taking care of my new grandsons.”

“I started working with Sunrise in April of 2018, but I have worked in the nursing field for a little over 16 years. Most of my background is in skilled care nursing, long-term care, and acute care.

I enjoy being a nurse and taking care of our residents and family members with respect, kindness, dignity, and compassion.

In my free time, I love spending time with my family, traveling, and exploring diverse cultures."

Reminiscence Coordinator

"I am a former Sunrise team member from 2009. I started as a Care Manager, got promoted to Lead Care Manager, and then became Activities Assistant.

After leaving Sunrise, I continued working as an Activities Director in Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. One of the main reasons I came back to Sunrise is because of the culture. I love interacting with our residents and love the fact that you can grow within the company.

When I’m not at work and the weather is nice, I love spending time with my family, cooking, and teaching myself new things."


Nikiesha MarshallNikiesha Marshall

Business Office Coordinator

"I started working with Sunrise in February 2018 and it has been nothing short of amazing. I am originally from Boston, MA and have worked in the Finance and Human Resource Industry for over 10 years.

I am a people person and love engaging with the residents and their families, as they truly make my heart smile. I am also a big proponent of growth and love encouraging and assisting team members in accomplishing personal and professional goals.

In my spare time I love to read, travel and am considered to be an action junkie – bungee jumping, zip-lining and next up on the list, skydiving!

Favorite Quote: I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination."
