“I am very passionate about serving prospective residents and their families. Being a resource to families during their search for assisted living is a true honor. Our community strives every day to follow the Sunrise mission to champion quality of life for all seniors.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, as well as baking and trying new foods.”

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."

There is no greater pleasure than going to work and doing what I do best; helping my residents live a purposeful life that is of the highest quality.
