"I work with a team of professionals that have caring, serving hearts; and who show compassion to our residents and their families while providing the best care. They exemplify our core values of passion, respect, trust, joy in service and stewardship. The Sunrise team takes a kind-hearted approach to senior care. It’s a value we all share. And we are guided by the same Principles of Service to our residents: encouraging independence, enabling choices, preserving dignity, celebrating individuality, nurturing the spirit, and involving family and friends.

I love knowing that I make a difference every day in the lives of our residents. It is a privilege to work with my team members to champion the quality of life for all seniors through a care-focused environment that allows them to live their life to the fullest. Working with seniors is my passion. I enjoy being in their company and learning about their lives and experiences and I am fortunate to do what I love as a career.
