Meet the Sunrise of Gurnee Team

Welcome to Sunrise of Gurnee, Illinois! We are delighted to introduce you to our team members who are committed to championing the quality of life for all seniors. We happily serve as a resource to residents within our Sunrise community and their families, in addition to those who reside in the greater Lake County area. Sunrise is a very special place! We look forward to personally meeting with you and sharing the Sunrise Signature Experience with you and your loved ones.

Executive Director

“I enjoy the opportunity to visit with residents, understand their needs and expectations for care, and to be an advocate to ensure that the highest quality of care is provided. Sunrise is a progressive company continually striving to “do it best.” I appreciate the strategic initiatives that help each of our communities to succeed in offering exceptional care that focuses on each person’s individual needs and preferences.

Kathy Dordick

Director of Sales

“I really appreciate helping families when they are dealing with one of the hardest decisions of their lives. These families need someone they can trust to guide them through this process, and I am honored to help.  I love the moment when the weight is lifted off their shoulders and the stress melts away, knowing they are making the right choice for their loved one.

Sunrise encourages every team member to champion the quality of life for all seniors, regardless of whether they join us as Sunrise residents. At Sunrise of Gurnee, we are a tight-knit family, and we all have the best interests of our residents at heart.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and watching my daughter’s sporting events and music concerts. I enjoy coaching my daughter’s soccer team, volunteering for the American Cancer Society, the March of Dimes and the Lupus Foundation of America.”

“I enjoy interacting with the residents and the bonds I have developed with them and their families. I love my job because I am deadline-driven and although it can be challenging, I enjoy and love my role in the community. Sunrise genuinely cares for the wellbeing of the residents, team members and family members. I believe in our mission and feel the principles of service are practiced with every opportunity given.”

“The best part of working at Sunrise is what the seniors give back to me.  From the very first senior to the present, they have taught me that no matter what their life concerns are, they are still worthy and can contribute a lot. They share life memories and many talents. I equally enjoy talking with their families and value the trust they have in me.  Most of all, I love to tease and make everyone laugh.

Many team members would say that my favorite part of my job is that I get great joy “hounding” them to get their paychecks. I consider myself a team player, so I enjoy providing that service, and others, for them during their busy shifts. 

The activities I like to do outside of Sunrise would be spending time with my twin grandsons, reading, biking, working out, church activities, wine-tasting, subbing, sharing time with good friends, and taking ballroom dancing lessons. Working at Sunrise has definitely enriched my life…leaving me feel very blessed not only within our home but also out in the community.”
