Sunrise of Flossmoor

Meet the Sunrise of Flossmoor Team

The Sunrise of Flossmoor team has been a pillar in the Homewood-Flossmoor area since 2000. We take an active role in our community, attend local churches and proudly wear our Sunrise name badges. Together, we have raised thousands of research dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association, host support groups focused on caregiver burnout and dementia support, and promote various charities that our residents participate in. We are very proud of our Sunrise family and look forward to meeting you!

Executive Director

"I have been in the Healthcare field for 25 plus years and since starting at Sunrise and I truly believe this is where I should be. The Residents and Team members have welcomed me as part of their Family and it is a joy to come to work each day. The family atmosphere is evident throughout the community and can be seen by the interactions between residents and team members, conversations and laughter can be heard all around the community and it’s a joy to be part of creating that.

 I am excited for my journey at Sunrise of Flossmoor and look forward to continuing my career with a family who are ready to Champion Quality of Life for all Seniors and create memories to last a lifetime!"

Director of Sales

"I started working in senior living 10 years ago in Arizona. My career started as a dining room care manager in an assisted living neighborhood and was shortly promoted to care manager/medication manager in a memory care neighborhood. I took a break from senior living for 3 years and spent some time working as a medical assistant in a level one trauma hospital in Arizona.  My passion for senior living is so strong that it led me to pursue my bachelor's degree in health care administration from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. I have worked with Sunrise since February of 2020 at our Danville, CA community as an Associate Director of Sales and recently promoted to Director of Sales at our Flossmoor, IL community. 

In my spare time, I love to be outdoors with my husband and two pups or watching a baseball game (Go D-backs!)"

Lead Care Manager

“I have been caring for seniors for almost 20 years and have loved every minute of it. I was raised in a very tight family that always respected and cherished their elders. I bring those same morals and values with me to work every day. I have made great friends at Sunrise and developed deep bonds with the residents and their families. It truly is a second family to me.

I wanted to work for an organization that I could be proud of.  From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this was my new home.  I have not been disappointed.”

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

My name is Zakiyyah Ali, and I have had the privilege of serving as an Activity & Volunteer Coordinator with Sunrise for over 4 years! I started out at the Sunrise of Fountain Square overseeing the programming for three neighborhoods (Assisted Living, Reminiscence, and Terrace Club) and eventually transferred to the Sunrise of Flossmoor! You might catch me leading SingFit (a signature music therapy program), walking around the community during our daily Walking Club, or on the bus headed to our next lunch outing destination! My favorite part of being with Sunrise is the ability and opportunity to connect with our residents. We truly are a family, residents and staff included, and I enjoy bringing a little bit of joy and excitement to our community each day! I sleep very well at night knowing the impact and the importance of my role. Small conversations, shared laughs, and unforgettable memories are what drive me to come in each day and contribute to our mission to champion the quality of life for all seniors. This position has made me a better person overall, and I am thankful for every moment spent here with my residents and staff.

Maintenance Coordinator

"Prior to coming to Sunrise of Flossmoor, I was employed by the Homewood Fire Department for over 30 years, retiring as Fire Chief, as well as a Paramedic. I also worked construction/remodeling for years as a Union Electrician and Union Glazer. I am a member of the Parkview Christian Church and serve as an Elder and a Trustee. I have 2 children, 2 grandchildren, and 4 (4 legged )“grand dogs” who occasionally vacation at my house while their human family is away. I enjoy spending time with the residents and learning more about their life stories. I am always happy to help with whatever is needed, along with my trusty side kick Howie (the community dog)!"
