Fort Worth-Jeannine

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.”

Hillary Ortega—Team Member Since 2011

Assisted Living Coordinator

“Before joining the Fort Worth team, I worked in the healthcare industry in various hospital and residential settings for more than 12 years.

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.”

Juhree Knowles—Team Member Since 2016

Activity & Volunteer Coordinator

"I began at Sunrise of Forth Worth in October of 2016, but I have worked in the senior living industry since 1993 and as an activity coordinator since 2013. 

Everyday is a blessing because I get to bring purpose to the lives of our residents. When I see and hear them laugh and have fun, it simply makes my day each time!The best part of working at Sunrise is knowing that the company truly cares about their residents and upholds their mission on a daily basis. 

In my spare time, I generally spend time with my family. I have two grandchildren that I spend most of that time with, and I also love to read."
