Meet the Sunrise of Gahanna Team

Meet some of the outstanding members of our team here at Sunrise of Gahanna, OH.

travis shrefflerTravis Shreffler 

Executive Director

Travis joined the team at Sunrise of Gahanna in 2002 and spent the first 12 years of his career as the Dining Services Coordinator.  After showing a desire to take on additional responsibility, he was accepted into the Executive Director in Training program, which led him to his current position at Sunrise of Gahanna.
Travis says his favorite part of his new role is the increased ability to serve and impact residents, families and team members.  Travis calls the residents “wise beyond their years” and says there is always a life lesson to learn from them.  

When Travis is not at Sunrise, you can often find him spending time outdoors, hiking and mountain biking. He also enjoys giving back to the community by introducing more youth to the sport of rugby, which he also plays and coaches. He still cooks quite a bit, too!

Jeanie Jolliff

Resident Care Director

Jeanie has served as a member of the Sunrise team for 15 years.  Prior to serving the residents at Sunrise of Gahanna, she served as a team member at Sunrise of Worthington and Sunrise of Bexley.  Her clinical leadership drives our team to perform their best.  

She says the best part of working at Sunrise is serving alongside such a caring group of team members.  

When Jeanie is not serving our residents at Sunrise, she enjoys spending time outdoors with family and friends (especially her 2-year old grandson), reading and, of course, watching Buckeye football.

Michael Varrone 

Dining Services Coordinator

Michael is the newest addition to the seasoned team at Sunrise of Gahanna. He joined the team in 2014 and took over daily operations in the kitchen as the Dining Services Coordinator.  

Michael says his favorite part of his role is teaching and working with the chefs here at Sunrise of Gahanna.   He prides himself on his ability to impart his extensive culinary knowledge and skillset to the frontline team in Gahanna so that they are able to better serve our residents in the dining rooms.  

Michael is an avid musician, and when he isn’t at Sunrise cooking and teaching, he can be found playing the piano or guitar.  He also loves to watch movies and, of course, cook.

Yolanda Henderson 

Activity and Volunteer Coordinator

Yolanda has served our residents at Sunrise of Gahanna for 15 years.  Prior to Sunrise, she spent 21 years working for a family-owned hardware store. Needless to say, Yolanda is committed to her work! 

According to Yolanda, her favorite part of her job is allowing residents to do something that they always loved doing. It could be as simple as eating a steak that has been mechanically modified, visiting their favorite restaurant, spending time fishing on a pontoon boat or traveling for a camping trip. The joy they experience makes all the work worthwhile. At Sunrise, Yolanda says, they really work as a team to make seniors’ lives better. 

In her spare time, Yolanda loves spending time with her granddaughter. She also enjoys hanging out with all of her family and hosting family gatherings such as Christmas and their annual camping trip over Labor Day weekend. She enjoys scrapbooking, playing in a euchre card club and cooking.
