Brandie Windsor

Brandie Windsor–Team Member since 2015

Executive Director

“I have worked in senior living for nearly 20 years, and have served our senior population in many capacities.  I have been a geriatric nurse for 16 years.

My favorite part of my job is seeing our residents each day and enjoying their stories, listening to the advice they offer, and helping them to live a purposeful and joyful life in our community.

Sunrise is a fantastic company and a true leader in senior living.  Every day we are each encouraged to follow the mission of this pioneer company to champion quality of life for all seniors.

In my spare time, I enjoy my two girls, Sara and Megan.  I love to travel, cook, and spend time with friends and family.”

Director of Sales

“I have held my position here at Sunrise of Louisville since 2011. Previously, I was the regional healthy actions director for the YMCA of greater Louisville, overseeing programming related to healthy eating and physical activity for more than 50 before and after school and early childhood programs.

My mom is my best friend, and I would love to hang out with her each day. But, time doesn’t allow for that. At Sunrise, I have the opportunity to spend every day with someone’s mom and/or dad, which is something I know they wish they could do. How great is that?! Time is the most valuable asset we have in life, and we have to make the most of it. My job allows for engagement, relationship building, memory making, and fun – all things that bring purpose to our lives. I’m extremely grateful that our families are so generous in sharing their loved ones with us. 

Family and being home are two very important things to me. Spending time with my husband and our daughter, as well as our extended families are some of my happiest. I am also an avid runner, having completed 5 full marathons and 11 half marathons. I enjoy cooking, coffee, SEC football and basketball, and a good glass of wine.”

Personal Care Coordinator

“My previous experience includes 5-10 years working in the health care field as a clinical team lead, department head and administrator. 

I love the daily interactions I get to have with our residents. It’s like having another set of parents. If I’m away from the building for an extended period of time due to vacation or business, they are always quick to remind me how much they missed me.  When I feel discouraged, the residents are always there and will remind me how much they appreciate me.  

During the past 10 years, I’ve had the privilege of working at several agencies and I have not found any company that values it team members as much as Sunrise. 

When I’m not at work, I like to play basketball, work out, and play video games or chess.”

Designated Care Manager

“I joined the Sunrise team in 2007. I spent two years working at a Sunrise in California before transferring to Sunrise of Louisville. I love making our residents happy! 

At Sunrise, there is always opportunity for growth, and the management team is supportive and flexible. 

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family, reading, sleeping and listening to music.”
