I love being able to connect with families and our residents each day. The best part of working here is that it feels like everyone is family. It's wonderful to be able to make a difference in someone's life each day. In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with my son and two dogs, and going to Southern University football games."

Business Office Coordinator

"I have been with Sunrise since 2013. I first started out as a volunteer where I learned that I really enjoyed working with the residents. I decided to take on the role of a care manager while working on my Bachelor’s at LSU. Once I completed my degree, I moved into the maintenance department while I worked on my Master’s where I was studying relationships of families and how they dealt with dementia along the process. After completing my Master’s, I took on the current role I am in now as the Business Office Coordinator.

I really enjoy being able to make a difference in other people’s lives, especially our residents’. At Sunrise, we aren’t just one position; we all take on the responsibility to take care of our residents. I have been able to meet so many different people along my journey with Sunrise. Sunrise offers a chance to meet people with amazing stories.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling to different places, going to the dog park, and watching movies."

“I have been with Sunrise since 2012 and was previously the concierge before taking on this new role. I recently Southeastern Louisiana University.

My favorite part of my job is seeing the residents smile. Being the AVC gives me the opportunity to have a lot of fun with the residents. I really enjoy seeing their faces light up when we try something new or just hang out and cut up.

The best part of working at Sunrise is the family atmosphere. It’s so nice to come to work and be able to laugh and have fun with residents and coworkers.

Outside of work, I coach middle school volleyball, play beach volleyball, and hang out with my family and friends.”
