We are proud to introduce you to some of our extraordinary team members who work each day to make our community a fantastic place to call home.
“I have always had a passion for working with seniors and have held many roles in the senior care industry throughout my career. I have been a licensed administrator for Residential Care for the Elderly (RCFE) since 2001 and have had the privilege to serve as an Executive Director for Sunrise since 2006.
My favorite part of my job is building lasting relationships with residents, families and team members. I appreciate the opportunity to make seniors’ lives better and value working with a team that strives for excellence, high customer satisfaction levels and team member engagement.
In my spare time, I like to hike and participate in my local church. Also, I am movie buff.”
“My favorite part of my job is helping residents find the perfect home for the special years of their lives. It’s a privilege to be a resource to residents and families during this journey. I genuinely enjoy meeting with interesting people and learning about all their life experiences.
When I’m not at work, I love yoga, meditation and spending time with my family. I have a passion for learning and exploring health, fitness and nutrition for the mind, body and soul.”
“I was raised in Melbourne Beach, FL, and attended Marshall University in Huntington, WV. I graduated from nursing school as a registered nurse and also completed a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology. I then completed the Critical Care Course for new graduates and started my career as an RN in the CCU/CVICU. After several years of clinical experience, I worked as a traveling nurse, working at several major medical centers including New York University and University of California, Los Angeles.
During this time, my father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. It was this personal event that would give me passion for working with seniors with special needs. After his death, I pursued a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles. I then completed my internship in individual, group and family counseling at the Maple Counseling Center and Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services, and I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist.
My formal training as both a nurse and psychotherapist, along with my deep commitment to helping seniors is what led me to Sunrise. I have been the Resident Care Director at Sunrise of Beverly Hills since September 2010.”
“I graduated from Scottsdale Culinary Institute in Arizona and my Sunrise career began when I opened the dining services at Sunrise of Studio City in 2004. I love the environment of our community and I’m proud that I have the opportunity to serve and get to know our residents. Sunrise of Beverly Hills is my second home. Unlike working in a restaurant, I thrive on the relationships that I build with our residents. I’m happy that I’m able to serve and cater to unique tastes.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family, go out to dinner or cook at home.”
“I have been in property management and maintenance for more than a decade. I’ve held various positions in the field, but the culmination of my work is definitely at Sunrise of Beverly Hills. The warm smiles on residents’ and team members’ faces make me feel at home at Sunrise.
When I am not at Sunrise enjoying the aroma of cookies in the entry, you can find me rooting for the Lakers, spending time with my two boys and wife, and enjoying a home cooked meal.”
