“I have worked at Sunrise Senior Living since January 2014.  I’ve worked in the senior living industry for 19 years. I love serving my residents, and working at Sunrise allows me the opportunity to spend quality time with my residents and their family members.  I also enjoy acting as a mentor to my fellow team members.  

The best part of working at Sunrise is my belief in our mission: to champion the quality of life for all seniors.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family at the lake.  I love to fish and boat and enjoy watching beautiful sunsets from our dock.”

“I’ve been a member of the Sunrise of Overland Park team for a little more than a year, have spent eight years working in long-term care and more than five years trained in caring for people with dementia.

I am a people person, so I appreciate the extra time Sunrise allows me to spend time with residents and their families. Sunrise is focused on promoting from within. I love that Sunrise allows me to focus on my career goals.

Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family. Usually we are doing something outdoors, playing Frisbee, fishing and hunting. I enjoy playing with my two boxers.”

“I have worked at Sunrise since 2014. Prior to joining the team here at Sunrise of Overland Park, I spent 16 years working in healthcare dining services. 

My favorite part of my job is meeting with and getting to know our residents. At Sunrise, I have the opportunity to be hands on with our residents. I love to cook, so it is a joy for me to prepare meals on a regular basis. In my spare time, I love to be outside doing anything - mostly hunting, fishing and playing with my dogs.”

“Prior to joining the Sunrise team two and a half years ago, I worked at a skilled nursing facility. At Sunrise, I love spending time with my residents and putting a smile on their faces when they are having a bad day.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy dancing, spending time with my family and going to church.”
