Executive Director

"In my role, I am passionate about the relationships I have made with our residents, their families, and my fellow team members. It is fantastic working for an organization that believes in championing quality of life for all seniors.

In my spare time, I love spending quality time with my family, listening to music, and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors."

Director of Sales

“I began my career with Sunrise when I was 17 years old as a member of our care team in 2006. Since then, I have had the privilege of working in various departments within the community, which has been the perfect preparation for the role I hold today.

Making a move can be an emotional experience, not only for the individual who is moving, but for their families as well. I find joy in easing their concerns and always strive to ensure the family knows that we will get through this together! I am so thankful to work with an amazing team of caring and compassionate people, which provides me with the confidence and accuracy on the information I share with families about our community. Seniors have always held a special place in my heart, and being able to help ensure they have the best quality of life possible, is something I feel truly blessed to be a part of each and every day.    

When I am not working, I soak up every opportunity I can to spend time with my 93 year old Grandmother, Rita. I am also a bit of a wanderlust, who loves to travel and explore new places.”  

Andrea Simmill

Senior Reminiscence Coordinator

"My experience with Sunrise began 13 years ago after a high school co op placement evolved into a job opportunity as a front line Care Manager.  Sunrise is where I discovered my passion for senior care; and thus made the decision to pursue higher education in the field of Health Studies and Geriatrics. Upon completion of my college diploma and combined honors B.A, I moved into my current role as Reminiscence Coordinator here at Sunrise of Oakville.

Sunrise’s memory care program is industry leading, unique and dignified. The cornerstone of our care model is that we treat our residents with absolute dignity and value, no matter their cognitive or physical limitations. There is much life to live, and the Reminiscence team (with their serving hearts) truly works collectively to create pleasant days and enhance resident quality of life. Sunrise principles of service are in line with my personal core values, and are the reason I have chosen to fulfill my career in Senior Care with Sunrise. In 2018, I was privileged to move into the Senior Reminiscence Coordinator role whereby I offer my support to our 8 other locations in Ontario. I am honored and privileged to be doing the work that I do every day, as it is truly a labor of love.”

Lead Care Manager

I believe in the Sunrise Principles of Service and what they encompass. I love working in a team environment and enjoy leading my team to ensure our residents are getting the highest quality of care while ensuring their dignity is preserved and their independence is encouraged.

My favorite thing about working at Sunrise is our residents. I love getting to know them and their families. I often say I have two families: my husband and 3 boys and my Sunrise family.

I love working at Sunrise because of our team, our residents and the exciting challenges the Sunrise menu brings me every day. I get to know each of our residents and tailor every meal to their preferences. Sunrise empowers me to make healthy and nutritious foods for our residents.

Sunrise has given me many opportunities to learn and grow during the 13 ½ years that I have been here. As a company, they are dedicated to making seniors lives better and there is a deep focus on the residents and what is best for them. It feels great to be able to connect with the residents and really make a difference in their lives.
