Jennifer GrayJennifer Gray

Executive Director

I have been in this industry for almost 10 years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I was a school counselor prior to making the move to working with seniors. My favorite part of working with seniors is getting to know them and hearing their life stories. I am particularly fond of our Veterans and so grateful for their service to our great country. They have a special place in my heart.  

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, shopping and cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball team. Rock Chalk!

Director of Sales

I have been with Sunrise since April 2016 and am grateful for the opportunity to help families find a wonderful, caring community for their loved ones. I am proud of the work we do at Sunrise and it shows in my enthusiasm .

I enjoy bringing Sunrise to new residents and their families on a daily basis. I also love working with a team that is dedicated to our principles of service and passionate about providing the best care possible. Our compassionate team members strive each day to champion the quality of life for all seniors.

The best part of my job is knowing that I am able to make a difference in the lives of all our seniors. I enjoy visiting with them and making each interaction a meaningful experience. When I’m not at Sunrise, I enjoy cooking and entertaining with my family and friends.

Mark Doctor team member profileMark Doctor

Business Office Coordinator

I have over 11 years of experience working at Sunrise of Lenexa. My favorite part of the job is meeting new residents and watching the Sunrise family continue to grow. Our seniors truly have so much wisdom and history to share with us, and there is nothing better than getting to visit with them and listen to their stories. I learn something new from our residents every day. 

Spending time with our residents and their families is what keeps me going. I also enjoy working closely with my fellow Sunrise team members, who are as passionate about caring for our residents as I am. When I am not at Sunrise, I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and participating in Scouts with my son. I am a sports cars enthusiast, and nothing is more important to me than spending time with my family and friends.

Jim DahlinJim Dahlin

Maintenance Coordinator

I started with Sunrise of Lenexa in September 2019. Each day I support my team by overseeing and providing all aspects of maintenance and housekeeping. Before coming to Sunrise, I served at another senior living community as the maintenance director and bus driver for almost 4 years. My background prior to services in senior living include Operations Manager, and Sr. Engineer in telecommunications.

The best part of my job is making sure that every resident is comfortable and well taken care of. Each time I assist a resident, or fix something around the community, I know that I am making a difference in their lives.

When I am not at Sunrise, I enjoy fishing, playing pool, bowling, golfing, and spending time with friends. My greatest accomplishment has always been making new friends, and bringing joy into their lives.
