Shannon HowellShannon Howell

Executive Director

"My passion for championing quality of life for seniors started 8 years ago as a fitness instructor working with Seniors. Prior to my career at sunrise, I played professional basketball for 8 years in the WNBA and all over Europe. I began my career with Sunrise in 2014 as an Activities & Volunteer Coordinator at Sunrise of Beverly Hills. I soon grew into a Reminiscence Coordinator for our memory impaired residents in 2016. My drive for bringing the best to my residents extended into growing into an Executive Director in which I have held my Residential Care for the Elderly (RCFE) license as an administrator for 2 years now.

My favorite part of my job is nurturing my team member’s growth, and bringing out the best in my residents. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, playing basketball, going to the local beaches, and traveling - Fuji & Israel being my 2 favorite experiences!"
