"I have worked with Sunrise since February of 2018. I have over 20 years of sales management experience with the last four being in the healthcare field. Just prior to Sunrise, I was in a similar role at a Memory Care Community. Before joining a community environment, I worked for a home health care agency assisting families with at home care needs. I found a passion for working with seniors when I decided to go back to school to potentially be a nurse. As time passed, I discovered a case manager role was more the direction I wanted to go, and I love that I can use those skills to be a better advocate for our resident’s and their families.
My favorite part of my job is being able to partner with families during their journey of choosing a community for their loved one. It’s an honor to a part of this decision-making process with them. Once a resident moves in and the family sees how happy, loved, and full of purpose their loved one is….it’s an unbelievable feeling knowing that I have helped change their lives.
I love spending time with our resident’s getting to know their stories, their history, and their passions. Sunrise brings out the true joy and the realness of our residents. They SMILE every day, and it is a privilege to work in their home.
My own family is also very important to me. I spend as much time with my husband and step daughter as I can. We love being outdoors, family game nights, going to the movies, and traveling. We have a bucket list of beaches that we want to vacation to! I am currently working towards my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services."
“I started as a server in the dining room and have transitioned into several roles at Sunrise, but when this activity position opened up I felt it was made for me! I wanted to see the residents come to life! I am able to use my education, love of art and natural talents to enhance the quality of life of our residents. I spent a lot of time in other nursing homes when my dad and grandmother were sick and it was so depressing. I was so impressed by the level and quality of care that Sunrise provided in such a beautiful, cozy atmosphere!”
"After 8 years of caring for individuals with developmental disabilities and surveying hospices and home health agencies for the state of Wisconsin, I believe I have found my niche in healthcare.
I chose to come to Sunrise because of their reputation for quality care in a home-like environment. I have been with Sunrise of Crystal Lake since 2017 as the Wellness Nurse Supervisor. I enjoy learning about the resident’s unique life experiences, and love sharing a laugh or smile with them. The relationships I have built with residents, their families, and staff have enriched my life in so many ways.
In my free time, I enjoy time with my partner and two dogs."
“I was drawn to healthcare because I like to take care of the residents! I am happy that I can make them happy and that they know I am always here for them when they need me. I am a part of Sunrise because they are the best! It provides a clean, nurturing environment where residents can feel at home.”
