Director of Sales

"Prior to my Director of Sales role, I was the Associate Director of Sales at our Westtown community. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a focus in Gerontology. I am currently pursuing my MBA in Health Care Management.  

My favorite part about my job is bringing Sunrise to those in need. I feel a great sense of fulfillment knowing that we can be the perfect solution for families while championing the quality of their loved one’s lives. The best part about working at Sunrise is doing so among hardworking team members who truly care about the health and well-being of our residents who are like family to us.  

I like to spend time with my fiancé and dogs, Toby and Cali, in my spare time."

Resident Care Director

"I have a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Temple University. I started with Sunrise 8 years ago as an LPN/med tech. I have been a wellness nurse for 6 years. I am also furthering my education to obtain my Master’s in Nursing.  

I enjoy working at Sunrise because because it feels like home. I am grateful the residents have welcomed me to their home and allow me to care for them and make me a part of their family. It makes me feel very good when a resident asks how my day off was or that they missed me while I was off. 

My favorite thing about working at Sunrise is that I get to make a difference in the lives of my residents and their families and also champion the quality of life for all seniors.  

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and traveling with him."

Reminiscence Coordinator

"I have years of experience in memory care, working with the Alzheimer’s & Dementia population. My education includes a MS in Long-Term Health Care Administration with a focus on Gerontology. 

My favorite part about my work environment is that every day is a new experience filled with social activities, that allow residents to feel purposeful, needed, and respected. My team and I receive a great sense of fulfillment knowing we are providing residents with high quality care during this sensitive phase of their lives.  

The best part about working at Sunrise is that Sunrise provides us with a high-quality care & activity platform that makes aging positive and fun. This platform provides us with the opportunity to debunk stereotypes associated with aging and senior living. Sunrise not only focuses on the care of the residents but also the care providers. 

 During my spare time I like to read and spend time with my family."

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"I’ve been with Sunrise since 2017. I started at Sunrise of Exton as the Life Enrichment Manager. After a year I became the Lead Care Manager for Personal Care. Shortly after, I was accepted into the DCIT program. I was able to get the position I have now after being in the program for just six months.

I enjoy everything about my job. Spending time with the residents and making their day is the best part. I look forward to seeing them just as much as they enjoy seeing me. The residents make me happy, they give me purpose.

I love working for Sunrise because the company invest in your growth. There’s so many opportunities for growth and Sunrise will coach and support you in every way to make you successful.

In my spare time, I love spending it time with my family and friends. I enjoy decorating parties, shopping and, making crafts."

We’re pleased to introduce you to a few members of our fantastic team who strive each day to make our community great.
