Meet the Sunrise of McLean Team

david sauerDavid Sauer

Executive Director

"I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada but moved to Columbia, South Carolina right after my freshman year of high school. I played division I baseball, as a pitcher, at Presbyterian College where I also completed an internship that sparked my passion for working with Seniors. My parents were born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri making me an avid fan for St. Louis baseball and hockey. I have worked as a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator at a skilled nursing facility from the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri for the past 3 years. Prior to that, I spent time working in every department including dietary, housekeeping, laundry as well as two months as a Licensed CNA. I am also excited about moving to Northern Virginia because of the opportunity to attend live professional sports again. I am eager to meet all of the residents, families and team members and be part of the Sunrise of McLean team!

My hobbies include trying new restaurants, being with friends and playing whatever organized sport I can make time for. I am also excited to announce I will be getting married next year."

Director of Sales

"I am thrilled to join the Sunrise of McLean team as the new Director of Sales. Although I am new to the Sunrise family, I have served the Sunrise communities of Northern Virginia for the past 3 years in Home Health and Hospice. I enjoy meeting new families, hearing their stories and background and introducing them to the McLean team. I have over 15 years experience in the Healthcare industry as a Nurse, Director of Marketing and Sales and look forward to being a resource to new families. Born and raised just outside of Pittsburgh PA, where I studied Nursing at Indiana University of PA and continued my education at Northern Virginia Community College. 

I have resided in Leesburg, VA for the past 22 years where I enjoy spending time with my family. I loves dogs, being outdoors, wine tastings, Penguins hockey and Steelers football."

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

“I’ve had a joyful time working for Sunrise Senior Living. I first started in 1996. For more than one decade I worked in the Interior Design Department as a manager to beautify our Sunrise communities. My passion is always to make pleasant environments for our residents, and now for more than nine years I’ve had the privilege to serve residents, and make their life more comfortable by nurturing their mind, body and spirit through purposeful activities. 

As activities and volunteer coordinator, I love talking with residents and hearing their life stories. I am passionate about providing quality activities to all seniors giving them my very best. In our Sunrise of McLean community, we love to enjoy music together. As a trained pianist I love playing the piano as the residents listen or sing along. Music is a big part of my life, especially when my children were young. We, as a family musical ensemble, traveled around Europe and the US to perform concerts and used music as a universal language to express kindness and joy.

I like to share this joy and kindness with the residents in planning activities in our community that include outings to Kennedy Center concerts, theaters, and other venues in the DC Metro area. It is my pleasure to be a part of the Sunrise Family. In my spare time I enjoy participating in my eleven grandchildren activities, teaching piano and traveling.”


Serena KerrSerena Kerr

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I started with Sunrise of McLean October 14, 2019. I have had the pleasure of working with the seniors in home health and hospice over the last 18 years in sales and marketing as well as other leadership roles.

The most rewarding part of my role is being a resource and guide for families in finding a friendly and supportive environment to call their new home.

The best part about working at Sunrise is the friendly and caring team members. Everyone is so welcoming and supportive to residents, families and other team members. I also love the opportunity to connect with the residents and their family members to provide the best Sunrise experience.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and visiting local wineries in the area."

Maintenance Coordinator

"I recently joined Sunrise in August of 2020 as the Maintenance Coordinator. Everyday I am responsible for maintaining a safe, clean and comfortable environment for the residents. With over 40 years of Residential construction as my background I have working knowledge of building systems and related code requirements. I have enjoyed getting to know the residents and assisting them with whatever needs they may have.

I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking Italian food. I am a previous owner of two Italian restaurants and a catering company so cooking is something I do for fun and to relax."
