Jeannine Zelm—Team Member Since 2016

Director of Sales

“I have worked in sales leadership roles in the healthcare industry since 1996 before having the pleasure of joining the Sunrise team in 2016.

 I love working for Sunrise because of the residents! At Sunrise of Fort Worth, I get to bring solutions and peace of mind to families—often during difficult times—which then bring joy to the families once again. With more than 35 years of providing assisted living and memory care, I am confident that we are able to provide a superior level of service that is unsurpassed in the industry.

In my free time, I enjoy an active lifestyle. I spend most of my free time cooking, but also enjoy fitness and the outdoors, traveling, and watching my boys play baseball and golf.”

One of the best parts about my job is that I always get to come to work and spend time with my Sunrise family; I get to interact with each individual resident and their family members which is a real treat.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my young daughter and my husband.”
