Executive Director

"I previously worked as an Executive Director for Sunrise of Abington, PA and Sunrise of Westtown, PA from 1999 to 2003. Then, I led the Osprey Point Retreat and Conference Center, a unique boutique conference center in Royal Oak, MD for the Klaassen Family Foundation from 2003 until last year before returning to Sunrise in 2018.

My favorite parts of the role are knowing and loving the residents in conjunction with supporting and celebrating the team members who bring our mission alive every day. 

The best part of working with Sunrise is the mission and values that we can enact every day and the support available to each community from every discipline if needs arise.

I am married to Aly, the love of my life. We love to travel, golf, and visit our children and grandchildren."

Director of Sales

"I joined Sunrise in February 2019. Prior to Sunrise, I was in the hospitality industry for many years. In 2008, I was introduced to senior living. 

I arrive at our community each day with a smile and see it as an opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s life. I strive to give our residents purpose every day and they give me purpose in return. I enjoy being part of a dynamic team, which has a common mission, to champion the quality of life for all seniors. 

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, paddle boarding and spending time with my husband and three children."

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"I am new to the Sunrise family after working in rehabilitation settings for many years as a Recreation Therapist. I love engaging our residents in meaningful and inclusive activities that bring enjoyment and purpose to their lives. 

I love making our residents smile and connecting with them on an individual level; everybody has a story!  I am proud to know that I make a difference every day.

In my free time, I enjoy travel, scuba diving, the theatre, concerts, photography, and gardening. I am also an avid hockey fan!"

Annapolis Team Member Michiko

Michiko Honda

Resident Care Director

“I enjoy taking care of our residents. I feel proud when I see a resident who was in a wheelchair walking without assistance, or when I see the end of life pain-free.

Sunrise is everything I have ever asked for. The company allows us to spend quality time with the residents. I have worked other places where spending time with a patient or resident was not permissible. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, playing sports, reading, listening to music, and taking time for myself.” 

Annapolis Team Member Michele

Michele Hopkins

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have been working at Sunrise since 2008. After serving in several different roles, I am now the Reminiscence coordinator.

I treasure the relationships that I have built with our residents and their family members. At Sunrise, we are able to give residents the quality of life that others think they no longer have.

In my spare time, I like to bake and read.”
