Brenda Waggoner | Executive Director

Brenda Waggoner

Executive Director

“I have worked with Sunrise for 18 years. I have served in multiple positions including Assisted Living Coordinator and Reminiscence Coordinator. I love that I have the ability to interact with our residents, family members and team members on a daily basis, and hopefully make a difference in their lives. 

The best part of working at Sunrise is the ongoing commitment to our mission. That mission, and how it is fulfilled in our community every day, is what has kept me with Sunrise for so many years.

When I’m not working, my husband and I enjoy playing golf together. I am also an avid reader of mysteries.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have been with Sunrise for more than six years. Prior to my current position, I worked as a care manager, and was then promoted to lead care manager/medication technician.

My favorite part of my job is listening to our residents and families, knowing full well that I am able to make a positive impact in their lives. I feel lucky that I get to work with a wonderful set of team members who go above and beyond to support one another.

In my spare time, I like to exercise or visit friends.”

Maintenance Coordinator

"I have worked as the Maintenance Coordinator for Sunrise for just over a year. Prior to working for Sunrise I worked as a maintenance manager for an aerospace company in the Frederick area for many years, while also still run a small home improvement and repair company on the side. Working for Sunrise has been a wonderful experience because not only do I have a job I enjoy, I also get to spend time getting to know all of our residents and their life stories, and even let some of them share some home improvement advice. Although the residents are the best part of my job, my favorite thing about Sunrise is their pet friendly policy, which allows me to have a chocolate lab as a maintenance assistant. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family especially my grandkids, playing with my 4 dogs, golfing, and fishing."
