Jennifer SerranoJennifer Serrano

Executive Director

"I have been with Sunrise for over 5 years as a Business Office Coordinator and Executive Director, but have also assisted other departments intermittently over the years. My favorite part of my job is working in a home environment because we have a sense of family with our residents. The best part about working at Sunrise is how we help make a difference in a person’s life. It is an honor to serve our residents and their families.

In my spare time, I enjoy learning and reading articles about almost any subject, but I love spending time with my family the most."

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I have worked for Sunrise for over 10 years as an Assisted Living and Resident Care Coordinator. Also, I have been a Job Coach training manager for neighboring Sunrise Communities for over 8 years. Before coming to Sunrise, I was a Certified Nurse assistant for 7 years, then I became Department Coordinator for 5 years for a nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community

The best part of my role here is training and leading our frontline team who will be the next generation of nurses and healthcare workers. It warms my heart to see my residents happier and more dignified under my care. The best part of working at Sunrise is the homey feeling, the flexibility in my schedule, and providing me with the hours of staffing we need to deliver the best care.

In my spare time, I love to entertain. Both my husband and I have large families, and I love to host and cater events where we can all enjoy each other’s company."

Additionally ,I take pride in leading the ongoing education in Validation and Behavioral Expressions which gives our team the tools to provide amazing care for our residents experiencing various degrees of memory loss. The best part about working for Sunrise is the opportunity for career growth at a place where our residents can get the high level of care they need, in home-style environment.

My favorite part of my job is helping the residents and planning activities that bring them joy. I also enjoy listening to the residents' life stories. The best part of working at Sunrise is the welcoming culture from all who work with the company and the support that is available company-wide.

Dining Services Coordinator

"I have worked in assisted living since 2010. My prior experience comes from working in the hospitality industry for over 25 years as having worked in a hotel, casino, collage, fine dining, golf course, and assisted living.

The best part of my job is seeing the smiles on the residents when they are enjoying the meal made in our kitchen. Also, being able to joke around with the residents, making them laugh, or having them tell me stories gives me great joy. The best part of working at Sunrise is the quality of life, being able to be at home at a reasonable time. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and being able to race motorcross on the weekends."
