"Over the past 25 years, I have worked in residential group homes, independent, and assisted living apartments, memory care residences and HUD senior housing in different positions ranging from being a care giver to managing the overall operations. I am excited to be a part of Sunrise where I can still continue to be involved in the day to day activities with residents and also manage the business.
Family is extremely important to me. I look at the relationships that are formed here at Sunrise like family. Strong bonds are created with residents, their family and friends, and the team members I work with every day. It is wonderful to come to work every day and be with those who feel like family. We all want to continue to support each other in living life each and every day with purpose.
My husband, Bert, and I have two children, Graeme and Liesl. They keep us pretty busy each day of the week with their activities. When I get time for myself, I enjoy being outdoors, eating good food, and going to see live music. I am also a dachshund lover."
"I served as a Sunrise Wellness Nurse for nearly a decade, and in that role I had the opportunity to ensure that Sunrise residents have a better quality of life. My belief in the company was solidified when my grandmother moved into a Sunrise community and she was able to experience the care and dedication the team provided my own family member.
I also enjoy working with residents’ families and helping provide them a peace of mind that their loved one is being cared for in the way they deserve."
“I have over a decade’s worth of experience providing care for those living with Dementia, and I have been with Sunrise since October of 2013.
Five years ago, I began my Sunrise Journey with Sunrise of Edina, starting as a Care Manager and later, Lead Care Manager and Med-Care Manager. I took on these positions all while dipping my toes into housekeeping, dining, nursing, administrative work, and giving tours whenever I could. Eventually, it led me to becoming the Reminiscence Supervisor for Sunrise of Minnetonka. All of my experience over the past years has lead me here to Sunrise of Roseville. Becoming the Reminiscence Coordinator was nothing short of a milestone obtained!
My favorite part about working for Sunrise is and always will be the residents—it truly brings me so much joy to serve those living with dementia, to see their smiles, and of course to learn something new every day!”
“I have been working in assisted living for more than a decade and have been at Sunrise since May of 2015.
My favorite part about working at Sunrise is the fact that I get to come in every day and be an advocate, striving to create a positive end of life experience for our residents and their loved ones. I love hearing our families’ stories and building relationships with residents.
In my spare time, I am an active volunteer with the Minnesota Rabbit Companion Society, as well at the Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. I also love to garden and spend time with my dog, Gilligan.”
"I have been at Sunrise Senior Living since 2011 and enjoy the company of our residents every day. My goal is to make every resident smile at least once a day.
I work hard everyday painting rooms, plumbing, fixing things throughout our building, driving my residents to activities in the Sunrise bus, cooking, serving and cleaning up in the kitchen, and traveling to our three nearby communities to help them out, too.
In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, playing golf, traveling, and spending time with my grandchildren. They are my pride and joy!
I have great memories of when my husband Jerry and I were in the 1998 and 2001 Royal families for St. Paul Winter Carnival.
I love my job, the best part is coming to work to see our residents."
