Kierra WalkerKierra Walker—Team Member since 2016

Director of Sales

"I've been in healthcare sales for 7 years. I have worked in skilled nursing, but my favorite is Assisted Living.

My favorite part of working at Sunrise is the team members and community environment.

In my spare time, I like to spend time with friends and love on my little Yorkie mix, Kaylee."

Reminiscence Coordinator

"After almost 20 years in the field of Environmental Health Regulations, I seized the opportunity to follow my heart. I joined the Sunrise team in February 2018. Having a nurse as a mother, our home was the place where many came for loving care. It was inevitable that the seeds she planted would grow. Leaving a job, to pursue my passion, allows me to fill my day caring for and loving our seniors. 

I enjoy spending time with the residents and team members where making the best of each moment is our focus. Listening to the residents share their stories, their fears and their unfiltered jokes is the most endearing part of my day.  

When I’m apart from our Sunrise residents, I take time to read, write, and travel."

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I’ve been with Sunrise of Frisco since December 2019. Prior to joining Sunrise, I worked in case management and administration in a residential setting, serving adults with disabilities.

Building relationships with each resident is the best part of my job. Listening to their stories or simply sitting with them as they share what’s on their hearts, is such an honor for me. Spending time with my residents and my team, makes it a joy to come to work each day.

The best part about working at Sunrise, is working alongside a group of people who genuinely care for our residents and are passionate about it. It’s such a privilege to be part of a team who comes together and delivers the best for each resident."

Business Office Coordinator

"I have been in the Accounting industry for over 23 years with specialized training in Medical Billing. I knew when I came to Sunrise of Frisco in 2011 that it would become my forever home and that it was here I was being called to. 

I love that I get to come to work every day and ‘do what I do’ but then have the ability to come out of the office and visit with our residents. The bond that I get to build with them is indescribable, and I feel I could never truly give back enough compared to what they give to me. Whether it is deadlines or trying to focus on my daily assignments, they are always there to check in on me and say hi or make sure I am not working too hard. It feels good to know that they care so much for us as well.

The Sunrise’s Principles of Service are what keep me here. Knowing that our residents are treated with dignity, and that we focus on their mind, body and spirit. I believe in the culture of Sunrise, and I am proud to say I am part of that.

In my spare time, I like to be at home hanging out by the pool with my spouse, our kids, and our dog. I love to decorate and am always trying my best to make our home our castle."

Cooking is my passion, but even more than that, I love cooking for my residents. Nothing makes me happier than to bring them joy through food. I love to meet with them at our monthly food committee meetings and talk about what they liked or didn’t like."

I love working with seniors. doing the job that I do for my residents is my way of giving back to seniors.  I may not be able to care for them the way the caregivers do, but I show how much I care by ensuring they have a safe and clean environment to live.

I’m originally from Puerto Rico, I have two girls, and I live in Frisco with my lovely wife. I love our community, I love taking care of it, and most importantly, I love making it a beautiful home for our residents."

Life Enrichment Manager

“I have been working with the geriatric population since 2000. I love spending time helping to fulfill spiritual and emotional needs of my residents. Using humor and sharing my story of being a cancer survivor helps my residents to see life in a positive light. I love spending time sharing special moments in their lives by creating positive days.

Working at Sunrise of Frisco with a memory care coordinator and executive director who allow for open conversation and thinking outside of the box allows us to provide even more quality resident-centered care.

In my spare time I love visiting with my mother and spending time with my grandchildren and my husband.  We enjoy our church charity work when we are called to duty and catching a movie now and again!”
