“Prior to joining the team at Sunrise I decided to pursue my passion by receiving a Masters in Gerontology from the University of Southern California. I have extensive experience with dementia and Alzheimer’s as a caregiver, advocate, and granddaughter to a loved one suffering from memory loss.
My goal is to improve the quality of life and self-efficacy of those in Memory Care. Sunrise allows me to be a part of the journey for the residents and their families experiencing memory loss. I love to be able to make such a difference.
I enjoy spending my free time with my family, friends and the newest edition to the family my little Maltese “Cookie”. When I am not with friends or family, you can find me with a good book, or in the kitchen baking. I am very excited to be at Sunrise and privileged to be part of the journey with your family.”
“As the healthcare coordinator at Sunrise of Mission Viejo, I get to develop lasting relationships with my residents. The other day, a resident grabbed my hand and said, ‘I love you! I love you!’ That kind of thing gives me purpose.
Outside of work, I like to play the guitar, dance and watch my daughters play volleyball and softball.”
"I have been with Sunrise since 2018, but I have many years of experience since I started cooking at Aqua in Dana Point at the age of 17. From there, I was a chef at California Pizza Kitchen, Mimi’s Café, and was a chef instructor at Sur La Table.
My favorite part of my job is talking with and hearing stories from our residents while they enjoy the food my team has prepared for them. The best part of working at Sunrise is that they allow me to have a great balance between my home and work life.
In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and cooking."
“I have been with Sunrise for over six years as a Maintenance Coordinator. Prior to Sunrise, I used to work for a real estate firm remodeling homes for sale dealing with all aspects of construction. I also have computer and technical knowledge from a prior employer of 17 years.
My favorite part of my job is knowing that I can make a difference to the residents’ lives by keeping this community as beautiful and as safe as it can be. I have a lot of pride in my position here at Sunrise.
My favorite part working for Sunrise is getting to know the residents and finding out the history behind their personal life stories and roles they had in life is amazing to me.
In my spare time I enjoy all sports as I have been a softball coach for all of my three beautiful daughters for the past 20 years. Spending time with family and friends is a big part of my life outside of Sunrise.”
