Mark Stantonaurora-mark

Executive Director

 "I began my career over 30 years ago in the hospitality field before changing direction and six and half year ago starting my journey with Sunrise Senior Living    as a Dining Services Director.

 A hallmark of good hospitality is being warm and welcoming so here at Aurora, I believe in leading a team that takes that goes that little bit further to take the  time to make ours residents day the best it can be, be it spending the time  having a chat and a cup of tea, or encouraging them to join in the many social activities we offer during the day.

In my spare time I still enjoy cooking and entertaining family and friends. When time permits I like to travel sometimes for the cultural history of Europe and Asia or just a nice beach in the Caribbean".

Director of Sales

"I have been with Sunrise since March of 2016. My career began here as the Business Office Coordinator and have moved on to the Director of Sales. My back ground is in Restaurant Management and a strong sales background as a Real Estate Agent; however, I was not fulfilled- I needed something more. I reflected back to a time when I was happy. I was happiest when I worked in a Retirement Home in the early 90’s as a Cook and an Activities Assistant. So I came to Sunrise and I have never looked back. I am so fulfilled and happy to come to work each and every day.

My favorite part of my role here at Sunrise is connecting families with solutions for their loved ones. I enjoy getting to know them and all their beautiful memories. In my opinion I have the best role here!"
