Executive Director

"I chose to join the Sunrise company as I strongly believe in the Sunrise Principles of Service and Core Values. I have been in administration as an Executive Director of Assisted Living for over 20 years. My career has made me who I am today. Growing up very close with my grandmother, I always knew I wanted to serve the senior population. My fondest childhood memories include spending time with she and her friends, listening to their stories with delight and admiration. 

My grandmother's generation made the world a better place for all of us. Their compassion, perseverance and fortitude reminds younger generations of what it meas to be the very best you can be. Inspired by all they have given to us, I strive to do my best every day in service to our residents."

Director of Sales

“I began my career with Sunrise in 2005. I spent five years with another community in Bellevue and then returned to Sunrise. It was certainly nice to come home to Sunrise!

My favorite part of the job is introducing new families to our great team and sharing how the Sunrise Principles of Service and the Sunrise Signatures guide what we do and who we are.  I can see the comfort and confidence this brings to them as they consider the benefits to their loved one.  

At Sunrise, we are surrounded by a wonderful group of people who joyfully care for our residents throughout the community with the knowledge that each of us makes a difference in someone’s life every day.  

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, volunteering at my church, quilting, and getting outside in our beautiful Pacific Northwest.”

Lisa Haynes 

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

“I joined the Sunrise team in October 2015 and have been a member of the Lynnwood team since July 2014. Spending time with the residents brings me great joy and I am grateful for the good times we share.  Generating happy hearts through activities, outings or simply through conversation is always rewarding; every day is an incredible experience.  

Nurturing the spirit and celebrating individuality, along with our other Sunrise Principals of Service, encourages us all to get to know each other better and allows for us to make the most of every day and thrive as a community. 

When I’m not at work, I like to travel with my family and spend time with my sweet dog, Claudia.”

Dining Services Coordinator

"I joined the Sunrise of Lynnwood team as Dining Services Coordinator in 2020. I come from a large family so everyone had to help out and that included in the kitchen. From an early age my mother who was a cook for a skilled nursing community would have her children volunteer. I developed a love for seniors from that early experience. Working in the food industry for 40 years mostly serving senior communities has been my passion. I appreciate the stories residents have to share and knowing I make a difference to their daily lives by providing freshly prepared home cooked meals.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my family, taking road trips, walks, and listening to good old country music!"
