Associate Executive Director

“I have been with Sunrise since 2011. I have recently transferred from an Executive Director position at Sunrise at Tustin to join our team at Henderson. Prior to being an Executive Director, I also worked as an Assisted Living Coordinator for a Sunrise community in Arizona. My career in the healthcare industry started as a CNA in a rehabilitation facility. I then went to work for another assisted living company for 12 years in Las Vegas before working with Sunrise Senior Living. 

My favorite thing about working at Sunrise is getting the opportunity to connect with our residents and learning their amazing life stories. The best part of working at Sunrise is being able to positively impact moments of growth in our team members and making a difference every day by creating that pleasant day for our residents.

During my spare time, I enjoy being with my husband, kids, and my grandchildren. I also enjoy going out with my husband on the motorcycle on trips or short rides.”

In November 2013, I moved to Las Vegas and came to Sunrise Henderson as a cook. I later took on my current role as Dining Services Coordinator. I love being a part of this team and serving so many wonderful residents.”

“I have been working as the Assisted Living Coordinator at Sunrise of Henderson for two and half years. Initially, I chose Sunrise Senior Living as an opportunity to gain experience with my degree. I remain here because of the expectations the company has for its residents and team members. I love being able to assist residents and their family members with transitioning into our community. When I go home at the end of the day, I feel grateful that I was able to be a positive factor in someone else’s life. The resident’s and their loved one’s truly become a part of our family.”

“I joined Sunrise of Henderson almost three years ago because, after working at a competitor, I felt the Sunrise difference of warmth and comfort in the building itself – I instantly knew I would love working here. 

Not only do I love providing great customer service every day, I love the feeling I get by making our residents feel special and the peace of mind they feel knowing we will take care of them.”
