Director of Sales

"I started my sales career in technology sales. Many years later and after my Mom lost her battle to Cancer, I remembered her asking me when I was a young woman, "what are you going to do to help others?" After pondering this question, I have spent the last 8 years in healthcare, including educating families about hospice. My favorite part of working at Sunrise is helping families and hearing their loved ones story. My intention is to make sure everyone receives the same service I would want for my own Grandparents."

Assisted Living Coordinator 

"In 2015, I started my career in the senior living industry and immediately fell in love working with seniors. As a registered nurse from the Philippines, serving in the healthcare field gives me sense of purpose and joy. I joined Sunrise of Hermosa Beach June 2017 as a Life Enrichment Manager, creating pleasant days for residents in our Reminiscence Neighborhood. After a year, I became an Activities and Volunteer Coordinator, facilitating meaningful activities in our community.

Currently I work as an Assisted Living Coordinator, promoting quality care for our residents. I am a true testament that there is growth within Sunrise. When I am not at work, I enjoy biking and watching the sunset at the beach. I also have a sweet loving pug named Mochi."

Resident Care Director 

"I have worked at Sunrise of Hermosa Beach since 2018 and am grateful to be part of such a great team. I have been a Registered Nurse for over 10 years, and my experiences before Sunrise include medical-surgical nursing in an acute care hospital, and home health nursing with both pediatric and geriatric patients. I also attended graduate school at Johns Hopkins University and received a dual master’s degrees in Nursing and Business Administration with a focus in Health Systems Management. 

I have always been most passionate about working with the elderly population, and so I love that my role as Resident Care Director at Sunrise allows me to both care for our residents and also lead an awesome team of nurses and medication care managers. In my spare time, I enjoy playing board games and going for walks at the beach with my husband."

Business Office Coordinator

"Back in 2009, was when I first began working in a small community in Orange County. I worked there for almost 10 years as the Business Office Manager before joining Sunrise of Hermosa Beach in October 2018. As the Business Office Coordinator, I enjoy working for our residents & with our AWESOME team! The care & dedication our team shows is such a joy to be part of. My favorite part of Sunrise is the daily interactions with our residents; they’re living history and I love hearing their stories. Seeing our residents every day gives me a sense of purpose. I am so proud to work here.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking brunch for my family, watching movies (mostly Rom-Coms & Super Hero stuff), and just relaxing in my backyard Oasis with my family and dog. I also love volunteering at charitable events."

Dining Service Coordinator

"I started working for Sunrise in 2008, and have loved every minute. I have a passion for cooking and love using fresh ingredients that bring the flavors of a dish to life. Serving our residents is very fulfilling, and I look forward to many more years of doing just that at Sunrise.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing music and spending time with my kiddos."

Maintenance Coordinator

"Over ten years ago I started working in Senior Living as a maintenance coordinator. I've always had a passion to help seniors. It warms my heart to see a smile on their face after completing a task for them. It makes me feel like my hard work is worth while. I've even been able to learn from residents how to fix things. I remember one resident in particular that was an engineer. He wasn't able to perform the work himself, but we shared ideas and he taught me a thing or two. Not only did this brighten my day, but his too. I also enjoy managing our amazing housekeeping team that works so hard to keep our community clean and beautiful.

During my downtime, I like to go to the beach, play soccer and spend time with my wife and kids."
