Executive Director

"I came to the United States over 30 years ago from Haiti on an academic scholarship. While business management was my primary focus, I started my professional career over 22 years ago as a medical surgical nurse. My nursing career spanned from working in hospitals, skilled nursing, psychiatric care and assisted living. While working as a wellness director, I continued my education and became a personal care home administrator. It did not take long to find myself on the operations side of healthcare and I was promoted to the Executive Director position. Like they say, the rest is history.

Our mission: "To champion quality of life for all residents" is not just a slogan. You feel it the minute you walk through the doors of Sunrise. Whether it’s watching the residents enjoying a social activity or hearing the staff's laughter through the halls. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to make a positive difference every day.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, catching up on the news, and watching Hallmark movies - yes, Hallmark movies! I also enjoy traveling when I have a long break."

Business Office Coordinator 

"I have been with Sunrise since 2001 and started as a Concierge. My favorite part of this job is the friends and relationships that I have made over the years with team members and residents. I am a nurturer by nature and and I find helping residents and team members rewarding. I look forward to being here another 10 years. The best part of working at Sunrise is watching my front line team members mature, grow and advance within the Sunrise community. Equally rewarding is watching the residents interact and develop their own great friendships. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, hiking and spending time with my family. My grandbabies light up my world!"

My favorite part of the job is being challenged every day as you never know what to expect. The best part of working at Sunrise I would say knowing I have made a difference in someone’s day has allowed me to know I’m doing good. No matter what the day has in store for me.

Reminiscence Coordinator

"I’ve been with Sunrise for a little over 5 years. I started as a Care Manager and then became a Lead Care Manager. From there, I was promoted to a Reminiscence Coordinator.

My favorite part about my job is watching the residents overcome daily challenges with the help of the team members. Every day I get the opportunity to live out the mission statement and put a smile on each of our resident’s faces. I enjoy assisting and connecting with the residents, even if it’s only for 15 minutes at breakfast and over a cup of coffee. The residents in our memory care neighborhood have taught me patience through validation techniques. The best part about working at Sunrise is the culture. I get the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people every day. I get to build strong relationships with the residents and the team members. Everyone at Sunrise is always willing to assist wherever and whenever. The ability to grow with the company is endless.

In my spare time, I am a full-time mother of 4 kids. I enjoy taking my kids to the park and for rides around the city. I enjoy crocheting blankets."
