Meet the Sunrise of Rochester Team

We’re pleased to introduce you to some of the fantastic team members serving our Sunrise of Rochester, MI, community.

Team member MelanieMelanie Belfry–Team Member Since 2015

Executive Director

“I joined the team here at Sunrise of Rochester after serving as the administrator for a very large sub-acute nursing home with 295 residents. I felt like I didn’t get to know the residents or their families because of the quick turnaround.  When I decided to make a change, I knew I wanted to work for the most stable assisted living company out there, and Sunrise has a stellar reputation. Now, I am able to meet every family and resident and build lasting friendships. 

Outside of work, I spend time with my family. I have been married over 30 years and have three grown children and two grandchildren.”

Director of Sales

“I’ve always had a passion for seniors.  Even as a young child, my friends and family knew I would serve seniors one day.  After completing my Human Services degree 20 years ago, I began my career in skilled nursing and rehab centers.  I have been with Sunrise for more than a decade now and every day I know I have lived the Sunrise mission.

I truly enjoy working with both our seniors and their families.  The personal reward of helping others is a gift given to me by those in our community.  

My husband and I have two daughters who enjoy volunteering at our community.  I love sharing Sunrise with others!”

Team member CherylResident Care Director

"As a nurse I have always had a passion for helping others.  I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Detroit. I love to assist seniors and their families navigate the health care arena.  I always seek to support their understanding of what the best services may be for their needs.  

Working at Sunrise these past years I have enjoyed the people more than anything.  I feel fully supported by my team and know we are all working with dedication and love to support our residents.  

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, shopping for beautiful vintage items, and spending time with my husband of over 30 years and our two sons."

Sunrise of Rochester Team Member OmegaOmega Rainer–Team Member Since 2011 

Business Office Coordinator

 "I joined the Sunrise team in June 2011 and have had the privilege of serving our seniors in many different facets. I started my journey and career with Sunrise as a concierge, then coming alongside the care team as a care manager, then to overseeing the care team as the resident care coordinator for three years before joining the Rochester team in January 2017 as business office coordinator. I enjoy coming to work every day and working alongside a team who truly values and strives to provide the best care for our residents and their loved ones. 

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband, our five kiddos, and family. We love to be outside, whether it’s at the lake, a baseball game or next to a camp fire."
