Executive Director

“As a member of the Sunrise team for nine years, my favorite part of my job as Executive Director of Sunrise of Playa Vista is making a difference in our residents’ lives. I love to see their smiles when they are engaged. 

The work environment at Sunrise is great because of our residents and my fellow team members. It’s wonderful to work a alongside a group of people who are hoping to achieve the same outcome: to make sure our residents are safe and happy.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy family time. I love hanging out with my three-year-old daughter, Madison, and my son, Mason, who is two.”

Bianca Ruiz

Care Manager

“I’ve worked at Sunrise of Playa Vista for five years and have eight years of experience as a certified nursing assistant. My favorite part of my job as a care manager is making sure my residents look spiffy and ensuring they are able to participate in activities such as baking, gardening, folding napkins or helping to set tables.

At Sunrise, I’m proud that we are able to provide our residents with freedom of choice. We also encourage group activities to give our residents a sense of purpose.

I like to bake with a group of residents from our Reminiscence Neighborhood and assign a role to each person. I have a director, mixer, measurer and egg breaker. We take some of our baked goods to the Fire Department to thank them for their hard work.”
