Sunrise of Burlington Team Member KristineKristine Taylor

Executive Director

"I have been with Sunrise since 2011 and have worked in adult day health programs and assisted living for more than two decades. The best part of my day is when I spend time with our residents. Whether it’s a quick talk, running baking groups, or taking them on outings, connecting with them is incredibly rewarding.

I love all animals, enjoy gardening, being with my family, and anything Disney."

Director of Sales

“I got into this field because of my own experience as the consumer researching assisted living options. I love meeting with families and helping them navigate such an important step in their lives. Whether they choose Sunrise or not, I want to help them understand what questions to ask, know what to look for and help create a sense of relief during an often emotional and difficult time. 

The team of people I met throughout the interview process really impressed me. Everyone reassured me - through their actions and how they spoke about the people we care for - that I wanted to work here. Their passion was contagious.”

"Since starting at Sunrise of Burlington, my favorite part of my role has been forming relationships with our residents and learning about their lives before they came to live at Sunrise. I love the residents and my team at the community, and it makes me want to come to work each day.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends."
