Sunrise of Northgate

Elizabeth Lippert

Director of Sales

“I started my career with Sunrise in 2011 as a care manager at Sunrise of Orchard in Colorado.  When I moved to Washington I was promoted to resident services coordinator at Sunrise of Mercer Island.  Afterward, I moved to Sunrise of Bellevue and worked as the assisted living coordinator.  In October of 2015, I became the director of sales at Sunrise of Northgate. 
I love meeting with families when they first come and visit the community and helping them through this difficult decision process.  I hope that by showing them our community and introducing them to the team, I can help them feel reassured that there is a safe, comfortable caring place for their loved one. 

The best part of working at Sunrise is engaging with the residents and our wonderful team members.

When I am away from Sunrise, my husband and I enjoy skiing, spending time with our friends, and playing with our puppy.”

Reminiscence Coordinator

"I started my career with Sunrise Senior Living as a care manager in 2014. In 2017, I was promoted to Reminiscence Coordinator and transferred to our Northgate community. 

The part of my job that I consider my favorite is taking care of our seniors and supporting my team. I also enjoy learning about our residents, their achievements, and their life stories. Lastly, I love having the opportunity to grow my career with Sunrise. 

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, reading, listening to music, and discovering new places for the best breakfast."

Dining Services Coordinator

"I joined the Sunrise team in 2013 as a cook at our Lynwood community. After a short time, I transferred to the Northgate community where I was promoted to Dining Services Coordinator. 

Sunrise has allowed me to showcase my passion for cooking and customer service. I'm excited to come to work every day -- it's like coming home to my favorite friends and family. I'm proud to be part of this team and part of the mission we stand by when it comes to care for our residents.

In my spare time, I enjoy teaching French, going to the gym, hiking with my dog, and exploring all great dog parks in the PNW."
