Sunrise of Haverford

Meet the Sunrise of Haverford Team

Meet some of the exemplary members of our team here at Sunrise of Haverford, PA. 


Shalita Miller, Dining Service Coordinator Shalita Miller

Lead Care Manager, Personal Care

"I have been with Sunrise of Haverford for over 5 years and it is like my second family. I can say with confidence that my residents can feel how passionate I am about them and their care. One of my favorite parts of my job is when I exercise with residents. Seeing the progress they make because of my motivation and coaching puts the biggest smile on my face.  Every day I come to work, I prioritize their happiness and safety as though they were my own family.  In return, they give me the greatest gift of all, their trust."

BJ (Elizabeth) Flynn, RN

Resident Care Director

“I have worked for Sunrise for 10 years and have served in both community and regional roles.  When everyone says that there is something special about Haverford, I know that first hand. 

The best way to describe us is that we are family and we treat residents with respect and dignity, as we would our family members. The most rewarding part of my day is that we have made a difference in our residents’ lives. It may be in the form of a smile, a touch or just a moment, but it is always meaningful. Residents make my days! 

In my spare time, I enjoy making memories with my children, grandchildren and extended family.  I also enjoy painting.”


Mary Small team member profile

Mary Small 

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“I have worked here at Sunrise of Haverford for a year and a half. I have a bachelor’s degree in therapeutic recreation from Temple University and half of a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Immaculata University, as well as a certification in SilverSneakers senior fitness. 

I enjoy working here at Sunrise because I love working with senior citizens! I find it extremely rewarding to share in our residents’ journeys through this stage of their lives. It is a blessing and an honor for me. I also love this job because it combines such a wide range of interests and responsibilities: from activities, to outings, to pets, to volunteers. Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not include how much I enjoy getting to know our residents’ wonderful families and friends.”


Justin Layman, Dining Service Coordinator Justin Layman

Dining Service Coordinator

"I started my food service career in the restaurant industry and haphazardly found my way into senior living.  Sunrise of Haverford has been my “home away from home” for the last 5 years and I cannot imagine a better fit.  What I love most about Sunrise is my interaction with the residents.  In my role, I have an opportunity to enact all the Principles of Service, but the one I most often use is Celebrating Individuality. Through our monthly Food Committee meetings and my individual resident “foodies”, I am able to tailor our communities dining selections to the resident’s preferences.  The feedback lends itself to an ever-changing menu that provides an excitement for not only the residents, but also for me."
