Sunrise of Rochester

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.

Sunrise of Rochester MI Melanie Belfry

Melanie Belfry

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 for 27 years and have three grown children and one grandchild.”

Keri Kater

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 nearly 10 years 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!”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“When I started with Sunrise 16 years ago as a Care Manager, I fell in love with the company and our residents.  Every day, I enjoy working in a community where team members work together to make a difference our residents’ lives.  I like to support my team and together we ensure that our residents’ needs are met.  

When I’m not at Sunrise, I love spending time with my husband and two wonderful boys.”

“Prior to joining Sunrise, I worked in the hospitality industry for 12 years.  I met my husband while working in Arlington, VA.  After four years in Virginia, we moved around the country and lived in Greenwich, CT; Austin, TX; Monterey, CA; San Antonio, TX; and Key West, FL.   We moved to Michigan in December 2014 and we’re excited to be closer to our families.

We recently bought a house and spend our free time working on home renovation projects.”
