How we’re responding as our vaccination rates rise.
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.”
"I began my career as a television news reporter. I specialized in human interest stories because I loved learning about people and their history. Everyone has a story to tell; whether it's a doctor who flew her own plane to remote areas of the country to provide medical care for those in need, to a gang member who decided to change his life.
Ten years ago, I decided to work in senior living after my grandmother moved to a community. I had a very close relationship with my grandmother, and I realized I could make a difference in seniors' lives. I have met so many seniors with amazing stories to tell. It is my mission to help seniors find the right community for this chapter of their lives.
In my spare time, I enjoy riding my bike on the beach, practicing yoga, walking my dog and the performing arts."
“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.”
