"My name is Michael, and I am the Reminiscence Coordinator here at Sunrise of Edina. I have been with Sunrise since May of 2015. I have worked in health care since I was 16 years old and have been volunteering with seniors since I was in 1st grade!
My favorite part of my job is being able to help my residents each and every day through validation. The best part of working for Sunrise is that we are a “family”. Coming to work every day doesn’t feel even like work, and instead, It feels like I’m going to my second home.
In my spare time, my fiancé and I take our two great danes to the dog park, and we also raise seahorses which is very unique and fascinating."

Then, I became the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator in July of 2014 until becoming the Business Office Coordinator in April of 2017. I have a dual degree in Early Childhood Education that allows me to teach from kindergarten through eighth grade. I worked to improve customer experience and train new hires for a major insurance company prior to working in senior living.
My favorite part of my job is the people that I am able to be around each day. I am able to work with a caring, diverse, and unique group of people, and I love working with the residents and their families. The best part about working at Sunrise of Edina is that since we are a smaller community, we get to develop strong relationships with the residents and family members.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, gardening, and traveling to warm places, preferably near the ocean."
"I have worked for Sunrise since 2014. My past experience includes Home Care nursing. primarily focused on spinal cord injuries.

In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, roller skating, spending quality time with my family, and I have a guilty pleasure of shoe shopping.
