Executive Director

"I began my career journey with Sunrise in 2001 as a Director of Sales at the first Sunrise in Sacramento. Following my passion for seniors, I decided to become an executive director in 2003 and have enjoyed that role ever since. I am very excited and honored to be part of the Sunrise of Carmichael community, since memory care has always been a focus in my career and holds a special place in my heart.

I have three wonderful children whom I like to spend time with and enjoy anything to do with the ocean and hanging out at the beach."
