Grace Kimball

Executive Director

"I began my career in senior living in 1997. I am a licensed practical nurse and I started my career as an executive director in 2003 in Fairfax, Virginia. I joined Sunrise of Fairfax in February 2013. 

I am passionate about serving seniors and leading others. Each day, I lead, manage and create a culture of integrity based on the Sunrise mission and values. The best part of working for Sunrise is the feeling of fulfillment knowing that we are able to impact our residents’ lives every day.

In my spare time, I am very busy rearing my four girls, who range in age from five to 21!”

Roel De Paz

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have been with Sunrise for more than two years and have worked as a licensed practical nurse at another facility prior to getting hired at Sunrise. I love what I do! 

The interaction and connection with the residents always makes my day. And, the best part is that I get to work with amazing people who are dedicated to providing the best possible care to our residents. 

When I’m not at work, I love going outdoors, hiking and appreciating nature.”

Maritza Garcia

Designated Care Manager

“I joined Sunrise of Fairfax in November 2000. Before joining the Sunrise team, I worked as a dining room server in a local nursing home. My favorite Sunrise Principle of Service is involving family and friends.

I love talking to families and residents every day and keeping them informed about their love one’s experience in our community. My son, John, also works at Sunrise as a concierge, and my daughter, Sasha, joined Sunrise of Fairfax in 2011.

During my spare time, I’m busy caring for my 91-year-old mother who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease."
