Cohasset Team Member Lea Goddard

Lea Goddard

Executive Director

Lea has been with Sunrise Senior Living since 2007. She began her Sunrise career as the activities director at another Sunrise community. After seeing the increasing number of residents with memory loss, she became Reminiscence Coordinator, serving residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. She returned to Massachusetts in 2012 to serve as Executive Director at Sunrise of Cohasset. 

Lea says she loves connecting with her residents, who have such great life stories and experiences. Recognizing how difficult it is to leave one’s home, it means so much to her to give back that sense of home and belonging to the seniors who live in our community. 

According to Lea, the best part of working for Sunrise is knowing that our Principles of Service are alive and well. There’s an amazing history to Sunrise and maintaining that culture of caring and championing the quality of life for seniors is a special part of this community. 

In her spare time, Lea loves to read, spend time with her parents on the Cape, and enjoy nature and the great outdoors. She loves living in a coastal area where she can walk to the beach and enjoy the sea, sand and surf.
