Since that time, I have held positions in social work, sales and marketing, and finally management. For the last 18 years, I have worked as an Executive Director for companies large and small. Three years ago I made the decision to join Sunrise. The company mission and values closely mirror my own. ‘To champion quality of life for all seniors.’  My job doesn’t get any better than that.

"Prior to joining Sunrise of Bellevue my career was in social work. I offered concrete and emotional support to seniors and their families through life transitions and in navigating resources. My experiences in skilled nursing, rehabilitation units, assisted living, memory care, and adult day health have sensitized me to the challenges that families and their aging loved ones often experience. I am pleased to work with Sunrise and to do my part in championing a quality of life for all seniors; it is a privilege to share in your loved one’s journey! Let me know how I can help ease the process of learning about this wonderful community and making it home."
