Our team members are truly what make our community “home,” and each valuable member of our team is hired for his or her serving heart and ability to care for our seniors. We’re pleased to introduce you to just a few of the team members who make Sunrise of Lincoln Park such a special place!
"I began my career with Sunrise of Lincoln Park in 2003 when the community first opened, as a Care Manager, and prior to becoming an Executive Director, I was the Resident Care Coordinator.
The best part of my job is enriching the lives of the seniors we serve every day, by creating an atmosphere of warmth, comfort, and security for our residents. Walking in the door at Sunrise of Lincoln Park, it feels like home, and what an honor it is to be able to work in someone’s home. I really enjoy getting to know our residents and listening to their life stories, as we truly have a lot to learn from their experiences.
When I am not at work, I like to travel, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends."
"I started my career in Senior Living in 1995, and have worked in Skilled Nursing, Acute Care, Long Term Acute Care, Home Health & Hospice, prior to coming to Sunrise. Since becoming the Resident Care Director at Sunrise of Lincoln Park, I have enjoyed getting to spend every day with our residents getting to know each of them individually.
My favorite part of working at Sunrise is the Sunrise Mission – to champion quality of life for all seniors.
Other than spending time with my family & friends, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and watching Iowa Hawkeye Sports."
“I started working for Sunrise as a Concierge in Beverly Hills, California for 8 years, and I been at Lincoln Park for two years. My favorite part about my job is providing tours of our lovely community to families, and introducing them to our friendly staff so they can see firsthand the many ways of what we do to champion the quality of life for our residents. The best part about working at Sunrise Senior Living is working with team members that I also consider my friends, which share the same passion of nurturing the spirit of all seniors. In my spare time, I like to read novels and meet with my book club members once a month. I was initially inspired to read by watching many of our seniors enjoy reading in our common areas. I also like to cook and bake, but I really enjoy trying different places to eat with my family and friends.”
“I love my work with seniors because not only do I learn from them, but I get to help their families as well. My favorite thing to do with our residents is host my signature Wednesday CeCe’s Tea Parties which are held in the Bistro! As a former Tea Room owner, I enjoy sharing different teas and discussing the history and culture associated with each different kind, and they love it! We also sample baked treats prepared by our residents in our Terrace Club activities! The size of our Sunrise community makes it feel like you are truly a part of a family and right at home.”
"I started my career with Sunrise in 2016. Prior to discovering my passion for serving our residents, I attended culinary school at Kendall College in Chicago, and I gained experience cooking in and managing various restaurants in Chicago and nearby suburbs.
The part I enjoy most about my job is leading my Dining team to provide an excellent Dining experience for our Residents. There are many layers of intention and effort that go into achieving this goal, from the way we interact with each other in the kitchen, to the service in the dining room, and the quality of food on each plate. Being a leader is equally humbling and rewarding, and even more so because of the Residents we care for. The best part of working at Sunrise is having the privilege to build relationships with the Residents we cook for every day makes working at Sunrise the most fulfilling career opportunity I have had thus far. Understanding our Residents allows us to cater their preferences and needs, and ensure they enjoy their Dining experience.
In my spare time, I love spending time outdoors, gardening, and learning new languages and cultures. I still enjoy cooking and baking at home, too."
“I really enjoy spending time with our residents – brain games, bowling, outings – or just having the time to sit down and talk about their lives, careers, families and interests.
I love working for Sunrise. In fact, I previously worked for another Sunrise community before joining the Lincoln Park team’s location. When my own mother passed, all of the team members, as well as the residents, helped me through a very difficult time of my life, and I’m very grateful for that.”
Julian has been serving residents with Sunrise since 2009. He served as a Care Manager, Lead Care Manager, Activities & Volunteer Coordinator, and a Terrace Club Coordinator prior to his role as ALC.
"My favorite part of my job is interacting with our residents. I love doing activities and socializing with them. Being able to make them happy, laugh, and smile brings meaning and purpose to what I do each do. "
