Beverly Bowser team member profile

Beverly Bowser 

Executive Director

“My favorite part of my job is making a positive difference in the lives of seniors. I take great pride in leading our wonderful team here at Sunrise of McCandless, and ensuring our residents have a meaningful life filled with fun and laughter. 

I believe in the Sunrise mission, Principles of Service and Core Values, which were developed by Paul and Terry Klaassen and have consistently been upheld to this day.  After many years in the senior living industry, I believe that no other company has been able to match this philosophy.    

Outside of work, I love to spend time with friends and family, fish with my sons and work out at the local gym.”

Jill Felton 

Director of Sales

“I began my career at Sunrise in October of 2004. I have been at Sunrise of McCandless from the time the community opened in June of 2009. 

I truly enjoy meeting with families and residents as they are starting their search for the right assisted living community. I take pride in explaining all of the wonderful services and amenities we offer at Sunrise.  Once they move into Sunrise, it is an honor to become a part of their family as they become a part of our Sunrise family.  

My favorite Sunrise Principle of Service is Involving Family and Friends. We have many occasions throughout the year (such as family night) where our residents can enjoy dinner and entertainment with their loved ones at Sunrise. The pure joy you see on our residents’ faces as they spend quality time with children, grandchildren and friends is priceless, and one of the main reasons I cherish being a member of this team. 

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family.”

Kimberly Thomas 

Business Office Coordinator

“I have worked for Sunrise for a total of 12 years! I have served in many roles at many different Sunrise communities, including administrative assistant, concierge, Reminiscence Lead Care Manager, Reminiscence Coordinator, Executive Director and Business Office Coordinator! 

My favorite part of my job is socializing with our residents, family members, team members and co-workers. I take pleasure in following and applying the Sunrise mission, the Principles of Service and the Sunrise Team Member Credo in my work. Sunrise is a home away from home. 

In my spare time, I spend quality time with my husband, Jermaine, my two teenagers, Brayden and Channing, my preteen, Lorenzo, and my set of twins, Isabelle and Elijah.  I enjoy my quality time with all of them and I love going to all of their functions and sporting events.”

Dining Service Coordinator

“I have been a chef in the senior living industry for 14 years. I began my career with Sunrise in 2006 and joined the Sunrise of McCandless team for our opening in June of 2009.  

My passion is serving our seniors by providing high quality nutritious meals and ensuring they have pleasant dining experiences. So many great conversations and memories are shared over meals, and we want to continue this tradition for our residents. 

I enjoy interacting with our residents during and after meals so I can continue to receive valuable feedback and make any necessary changes to enhance the dining experience for all of our residents.  

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing golf.”

I have a 3-year-old son, and I spend all of my free time with him.”
