Scott Brackenscott_bracken

Executive Director

"I have been at Sunrise of Rocklin since 2014. When we are able to identify something that needs to be improved, implement the change and see the positive difference that it makes, that’s my favorite part of the job.

"I have seen firsthand how Sunrise’s mission to, “Champion the Quality of Life for all seniors” is more than just a slogan but a mandate that drives the culture and the direction of the company. "

When I’m not shuttling kids around, I can usually be found going to, coming from, or at Home Depot.  I enjoy sports and the outdoors.

Rockyrocky_communitydog

Community Dog

“I came to live at Sunrise of Rocklin in Feb, 2015. The best part of my job is getting to clean up the dining room floor after the residents are done eating, and wandering into my favorite residents’ rooms in search of treats.   

I enjoy working at Sunrise because I get to greet all the visitors coming into our community to see if they have more treats or have brought any visiting pets with them.   

In my spare time I enjoy going for walks with residents and their families, howling along when the staff sing happy birthday to the residents, and snacking on carrot chips.
