Please allow us to introduce you to some of our fantastic team members who work each day to make our community a wonderful place to call home.


Christina Serrano, Executive DirectorChristina Serrano

Executive Director

"As a member of the Sunrise team for over a decade and as the executive director of Sunrise of Playa Vista, my passion is making a difference in our residents’ lives. To see their smiles when they are engaged is what I look forward to daily. This to me is an indication of a job well done!

Sunrise is a great environment to work in because of my fellow team members whose loyalty and dedication to our residents make each day enjoyable. It’s a pleasure and honor to work alongside our team members who share the same goal in achieving a common outcome… “To ensure the safety and happiness of our residents."

When not at work, I enjoy family time hanging out with my husband, Jose; my five year old daughter, Madison; and my four year old son, Mason.”

“The best part of my day is when I walk in the building and I am greeted by our Residents. It puts a big smile on my face and makes the day brighter. 

Being at Sunrise has given me a great sense of purpose.  It brings me joy knowing I have helped bring peace of mind and comfort to families.  I believe in what I sell, I believe in Sunrise!  Outside of work? I enjoy just hanging out with my family and friends.”



Designated Care Manager Ed Garcia

Designated Care Manager

“I have been a care manager at Playa Vista (Memory Care) for three years. I love what I do each and every day. 

I have started to view life differently since working for Sunrise. If I can put a smile on my residents' or team members' faces, I have done my good deed for the day.”

Barbara Tabb

Reminiscence Coordinator

"Since joining the Sunrise Senior Living team over 10 years ago, I’ve embraced their mission “To champion the quality of life for all seniors”. I wholeheartedly believe that we are all different, and life is so much better when we are met on an individual level and our issues aren’t generalized. This is the reason why I pride myself in getting to know the likes and dislikes of our residents so that I can better meet their specific needs. I wake up each day optimistic with a smile on my face knowing that I’m doing what I love most, and that’s caring for and restoring the dignity in our elderly.

When I am off, I enjoy spending time with my daughters, Mya and Quaneshia, and husband, Rapheal. Playing board games, cooking, laughing and talking is the best part of life with my family.

Business Office Coordinator

"I have been with Sunrise since 2015. What I like about Sunrise is that we strive to make our residents happy and comfortable each day. What I love about my job is getting to interact with our residents each day and getting to know about their life before Sunrise. 

In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing and spending time with family."

Latoya Johnson

Activities & Volunteer Coordinator

"I started as a care manager here at Sunrise in 2014. Since then, I have worn many hats. As the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator, I am honored to have our residents living with purpose and doing things they may have never done. My favorite part of working with our residents is bringing purpose to their days and having the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations each day with other residents. I can’t explain the joy it brings to my heart to not only listen to them but to understand them. I once thought they needed me, but in reality, I needed them. 

I am more than happy to have been given the chance to live out my own purpose. I am beyond thankful every day I get to share a moment with our residents. I thank Sunrise for this opportunity, and I really enjoy working for such an amazing company.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending all my time with my kids, going to different amusement parks, and spending our Wednesday nights at the library."
