Kristie NagleKristie Nagle

Executive Director

"I received a degree in business management, and paired that with my advanced clinical dementia certificate from University of Michigan. I left Sunrise of Northville for a year and a half to open up a new community, however, I came to realize that Sunrise is my true home. I came back to Sunrise at Our Farmington Hills community and have been serving that community since 2016. Needless to say, I am very excited to be back at Sunrise of Northville and serve the residents and families here.

My favorite part of working at Sunrise if fulfilling the Sunrise Mission - to champion the quality of life for all seniors.

When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my husband, son and daughter."

Assisted Living Coordinator

"I have always loved caring for seniors.  When I joined the Sunrise family 17 years ago, I began as a caregiver and worked my way to the Assisted Living Coordinator position. I also spent time serving as the Reminiscence Coordinator, in which I trained, mentored and managed a team of caring hearts. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and love to read and listen to music."

Resident Care Director

"I have been in nursing since 1991 and worked 24 + years at a hospital and then 4+ years with seniors at a different community, prior to joining our Sunrise of Northville family.

I enjoy coming to work every day, saying "I enjoy helping seniors and being able to care for them and their families. It has been very satisfying."

I am a proud wife, mother, and grandmother, and in my free time, I enjoy scrapbooking, painting, camping, and of course, spoiling the grandchildren!"

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"I have been with Sunrise for five years and have had the pleasure of working with the residents in our Reminiscence Neighborhood prior to my Activities and Volunteer Coordinator position.  After college, I worked in the medical field for three years and as a sales representative for eight years.

I also have served as a care manager, lead care manager, medication manager and life enrichment coach. I enjoy Sunrise because it gives me a chance to broaden my career and serve with love.  

On the weekends, I work with my church to distribute food from the Forgotten Harvest program and share information to help people in need."

Matt SchultzMatt Schultz

Dining Services Coordinator

"I have been with sunrise for 8 months. Prior to that I have experience in Senior Living, Private Country Clubs, Hotels, and Restaurants. I have also cooked for former president Obama, vice president Joe Biden, Chery Crow, and Kid Rock.

What I enjoy most about my job is interacting with the residents and trading stories while learning their likes and dislikes. This is something he feels is a very important part of preparing the food.

The best part about working at Sunrise is that I love that everyone will do anything to help each other and it feels like a family here.

In my spare time, I love spending time with family and going to events."

Maintenance Coordinator

"I’ve been working for Sunrise for almost two years. I started at Sunrise of Troy and transferred to Northville to be closer to home. I’ve been doing maintenance for the past 6 years. My favorite part of the job is to be able to interact with the residents; some of them even teach me tricks of the trade.

In my spare time, I like to golf and be outside. On the weekends, I'm normally on the golf course, fishing or adventuring around Michigan."
