Dining Services Coordinator

“I have been at Sunrise of Leesburg for 14 years. Before I came to Sunrise, I worked as a cook at Applebee’s.

I enjoy making our residents happy and satisfied with the meals we serve to them. I like to make sure they enjoy their time in our dining room. At Sunrise, every team member has the opportunity to advance; our organization fosters a great work environment and provides excellent benefits.

In my spare time, I volunteer for my church. I also enjoy shopping for groceries and taking care of my home. I like to read, watch the news and spend time with friends.”

Lance DeMello

Business Office Coordinator and Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“I have worked with Sunrise for about a year. I have worked in the roles of concierge and driver, and now I serve in a dual role of AVC and BOC. Thankfully, we were able to hire a part-time activity assistant to help!

At Sunrise, it’s a pleasure to witness and be a part of the symbiosis that develops between residents and staff.  We raise the spirits of our residents and they do the same for us!  It’s always nice to get a big hug and a, “Hi, honey!” in the morning.

At Sunrise, we let residents be themselves and remain as independent as possible. It’s great to learn about our residents’ lives and to get to know them.

When I'm not at work, I have many interests such as technology, music and cars.”
