We are pleased to introduce you to some of the members of our dedicated team here at Sunrise of Huntington Beach.
"I have been with Sunrise since 2016 and recently transferred from Sunrise of Claremont. I really enjoy working for Sunrise and serving seniors. I began my career in health care as a certified nursing assistant more than 15 years ago. I've been an Executive Director for the past ten years, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in community health from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL. I'm a Certified Dementia Practitioner, a job coach and enjoy training new team members.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time my wife Linda, daughter Madison and son EJ."
“I’ve been with Sunrise for eight years; four years in sales and marketing. Before that, I was the Reminiscence Coordinator here at Sunrise of Huntington Beach. I attended San Diego State University and obtained my gerontology degree. Previous to Sunrise, I worked at another senior living community that specialized in Alzheimer’s and dementia.
"I joined Sunrise of Huntington Beach in February 2018. Previously, I worked for our sister community, Sunrise Villa Bradford as the Activities Assistant. I’ve worked in several jobs since the age of 18 coordinating activities for seniors, here in Southern California and in South Carolina. I received my bachelor’s degree in health science from Cal State Fullerton.
From a young age, I’ve had a strong connection with seniors. I love spending time with them. It’s like having a never-ending supply of grandparents! It’s a blessing to go to work each day knowing I am doing something I love. When I am not working, you can find me exploring and photographing different cuisines with my husband and friends or singing with the Meritage Vocal Arts Ensemble."
"I joined the Sunrise of Huntington Beach team in 2012 and have held many roles during my time here. My favorite part of my current role is using my creativity and compassion to find resolutions to any problems residents may encounter. I enjoys being surrounded by like-minded people who share a resident-centered approach to caregiving. When I'm not working, I enjoy going to basketball games with my daughter and enjoying music at concerts or other events."
"I say that when the residents and their families are having a great time together, my team and I feel like part of the family. As the Terrace Club Coordinator, I feel that Sunrise gives me the opportunity to feel that I'm making a meaningful impact on residents’ lives. Outside of work, I like to garden, cook, watch movies and spend time outside."
"I have worked in assisted living since 2010. My prior experience comes from working in the hospitality industry for over 25 years as having worked in a hotel, casino, collage, fine dining, golf course, and assisted living.
The best part of my job is seeing the smiles on the residents when they are enjoying the meal made in our kitchen. Also, being able to joke around with the residents, making them laugh, or having them tell me stories gives me great joy. The best part of working at Sunrise is the quality of life, being able to be at home at a reasonable time.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and being able to race motorcross on the weekends."
