"I was born and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Economics. I am married and have one son and three daughters. My family and I have lived in Fairfax, VA since 2001.
I joined Sunrise 16 years ago, as a care manager and have built my career with Sunrise. I have an extensive background in resident care and have served in many different roles at many different communities at Sunrise: Medication Aide, Lead Care Manager, House Supervisor, Assisted Living Coordinator, Associate Executive Director. In September of 2019, I was promoted to my current role as Executive Director, at Sunrise of Arlington.
My favorite part of my job is meeting resident’s needs; it is my passion and each resident will always be unique to me and treated with the upmost dignity and respect.
When I’m not a work, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, housekeeping, and listening to music. I am a Hokie Mom, I love driving around in Blacksburg, while visiting my son at Virginia Tech."

I enjoy learning about residents’ interests, and igniting those passions or helping resident’s discover new ones, through our Live with Purpose programming. The next time you are in the neighborhood, stop by to say, “Hi,” and see what kind of excitement is brewing at Sunrise of Arlington."
