Anieka Padilla team member profile

Anielka Padilla

Executive Director 

“I have seven years of experience with Sunrise Senior Living. Prior to joining Sunrise, I worked in child therapy and as a marriage and family counselor. 

The best part of my job is making a difference for our residents and team members. At Sunrise, excellent teamwork is cultivated and we receive fantastic support for our leadership teams.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, having coffee and finding a good place for brunch.”

Sunrise of Mission Viejo Team Member TriciaTricia Shelton

Director of Sales

“Before coming to Sunrise, I spent many years as a hospice patient advocate. At Sunrise, the highlight of my role is move-in day for new residents. Families feel so much hope, and there is excitement from the team members. Picking up the welcome plant always brings a smile to my face.

Since joining the Sunrise team, I have fallen in love with the feeling of family and teamwork that you get being here.

I spend much of my spare time with family. My two kids are active in sports and scouting so my husband and I are as well.”

Sunrise of Mission Viejo Team Member PatriciaPatricia Darsow

Director of Sales

“My favorite part of my job as Director of Sales for Sunrise of Mission Viejo is the relationships I get to build with the residents and families of our community. I have confidence in our team’s ability to provide the highest quality care to our residents each and every day. We truly are a large family here. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I love the beach, barbequing and poolside fun in the sun!”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“As the Assisted Living Coordinator at Sunrise of Mission Viejo for the past seven years, my favorite part of my job is always when a resident recognizes me and gives me a hug and/or thanks me for what I’ve done. I love seeing our residents flourish, and knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s life.

When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with family and friends. We talk, eat and plan our next vacation!”

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

“Before coming to Sunrise, I was an activities director at a skilled nursing facility and also worked at St. Jude’s Hospital, coordinating activities for the kids and young adults that have to spend much of their lives in the hospital.

My favorite part of my role is encouraging our residents’ independence and interacting with a diverse group of people. The team members and the residents make working at Sunrise so special. 

In my time outside of Sunrise, I teach dance and yoga. I spend some of my free time doing volunteer work at a local women’s shelter. I also love to host board game nights with friends and family.”

Health Care Coordinator

“As the Health Care 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.”

Sunrise of Mission Viejo Team Member RobertoRoberto Marquez

Dining Services Coordinator

“I have been in the restaurant and hotel business since 1981; I have worked as a dishwasher, line cook, and front of house and back of house manager and chef.

I love to get involved with the service in both the dining room and kitchen. It allows me to get to know our residents and build close working relationship with the team.

I enjoy spending my free time deep sea fishing and golfing.”
