Mindy team member profile

Mindy Powell

Executive Director 

“I joined the Sunrise team in 2008. I have always had a passion for seniors. I love working with our residents to provide stability and a loving, caring atmosphere. 

I love my role in the community because I have the ability to make a difference and guide others to have a joy in service by setting that standard. 

When I chose Sunrise, I was coming from skilled long-term care. Sunrise offers a different concept and a different mission. I truly enjoy working for Sunrise and being given the opportunity to champion the quality of life for all seniors.”

Nicole Bledsee

Wellness Nurse

“Being a nurse at Sunrise in an assisted living setting and working with the elderly is different than working in a specialty setting. The residents and their families view us as an extension to their families. Bonds are formed that heighten the care. The setting is of a home-like environment and I am honored to assist them as they welcome me into their homes. 

Sunrise allows me to practice my chosen career in such a warm and inviting setting. As the saying goes: Great days begin with Sunrise!”

Lead Medication Technician

“I started with Sunrise more than 10 years ago. I truly enjoy the everyday interaction with residents and families. I treat the residents like I would want to be treated if I was in their position. They’re real people who have real needs. Each day, I gain a sense of fulfillment and purpose from providing our residents with care. 

Sunrise has strong Principles of Service, which I greatly admire.”

Kayrin Archer

Medication Technician 

“I love my job, so it is easy to get close and care for our residents as I would my own family members. I don’t see myself as just a medication technician, but part of each resident’s family. When residents’ family members are not around, I’m there to comfort, to care and to love on them. I get a sense of fulfillment when the residents are happy. 

Twelve years ago, fresh from completing my CNA class, I came to Sunrise to apply for a position. After completing my application, I was driving out of the parking lot and I could see the nurse who interviewed me chasing my car to ask when I could start. I have been with Sunrise of Richmond since that day. “
