"I began my career at Sunrise in July of 2017. My experience in the senior care field has spanned over a 13-year period, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to continue my service here at Sunrise.
As Reminiscence Coordinator, I have the opportunity to enrich the lives of our Alzheimer’s and Dementia residents by ensuring that their everyday lives are full, meaningful, and purposeful. I accomplish this by embracing and implementing the Sunrise Principles of Service and Core Values which I’ve found to be quite valuable as I begin my Sunrise career.
The best part of working at Sunrise is seeing on a daily basis how the training that Sunrise invests in its team members translate into our ability to better serve and care for our residents.
I am a huge fan of professional tennis, and in my spare time, I also enjoy interior decorating."
