Director of Sales

"I started working for Sunrise in October of 2017 but have been in the industry since 2007. When I was in high school, I started working in skilled nursing and have worked in many different roles. I started out as a concierge, worked in activities, then moved on to medical records and worked in admissions before joining Sunrise. I have always enjoyed learning different roles and gaining new experiences. 

I have always had a close relationship with my grandmother, and that has guided my career path. My favorite part about working in senior housing is connecting with residents and families. I enjoy bringing a smile to residents’ faces and am always here to support them on their bad days. 

Sunrise does a great job of investing time in their employees’ training. Although I have been in the industry for a while, I am always soaking up new information. Sunrise has a great support system, and if I have a question, I am always able to reach out to sister communities or regional team members. Sunrise has great opportunities for growth, and I have learned so much since I started. 

When I’m not working with families at Sunrise, I enjoy spending time with my nephew. I also enjoy visiting the local wineries with my friends, and I love to go to 80's concerts in Washington D.C."

"I have worked in the senior living industry for five years, two of which with Sunrise.

My favorite part of my job is helping cultivate and provide families only the highest levels of care, service, and experiences that enable our residents to thrive.

The best part of working at Sunrise is that Sunrise is a pioneer in the industry. They are leading the way with a deep passion for excellence that's contagious and invigorating. Every day we are given a new opportunity to bring joy, laughter, and meaningful connections to residents.

In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities, exploring new plant-based meals, and finding good reads that challenge me to grow."

Lisa JohnsLisa Johns

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

"I have been with Sunrise since 2018. I have often heard if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I didn’t fully appreciate that saying until I started working for Sunrise. I love every moment I get to spend with our residents. They have amazing life stories and so much wisdom to share. I also find great joy in sharing our Live with Purpose program with our residents. Nothing warms my heart more than when a resident finds a new activity they enjoy.

I love everything about working at Sunrise. The Sunrise culture empowers me to be the best I can be for our residents and their families.

I am the mom of two active college students. In my spare time, my husband and I drive up and down the East coast to attend their sporting events. We also enjoy spending time with our new puppy, Penny."

Bridget ClearyBridget Cleary

Business Office Coordinator

"I happily joined team Sunrise in the Fall of 2018 as a Life Enrichment Manager in the Memory Care Unit. I loved being able to connect with my residents one-on-one every day. I loved it so much I then became an RCC where I proudly drove Sunrise’s mission statement "To champion the quality of life for all Seniors" in every way that I could. A year later, I was given the opportunity to grow into the Business Office Coordinator role where I am actively learning the operations of opening a new community.

My favorite part of my job is laughing, hugging, and dancing with the residents. Prior to and during my college years, I spent many holidays, lunches, and events at Sunrise’s The Fairfax, where my grandparents currently reside. I couldn’t think of a better place to work after graduating college. You could basically say Sunrise Orange is in my blood!

The best part of working at Sunrise is all the AMAZING friendships and connections you create between fellow team members and residents. I still happily keep in touch with old team members and residents on a weekly basis from previous communities. They will always hold a special place in my heart.

In my spare time, you will find me cooking, baking, or coaching lacrosse. I have had a stick in my hand since I was 7- I absolutely love to volunteer and teach the sport that helped shape me into the person I am today."
