Jeff FolsomJeff Folsom

Executive Director 

“After earning a master’s degree in public health from Brigham Young University, I started my career in healthcare as a skilled nursing administrator in 2007. I have worked for Sunrise since June of 2011. 

My favorite part of being an Executive Director is interacting with all of the residents and team members. At Sunrise, we have the chance to serve and bring a smile to others. 

When I’m not at work, I like to spend time with my wife and four children. I like to run, bike, and play soccer with my kids. I spend a considerable amount of time serving in my church. I am an avid reader and always love learning something new!”

Angie BurgonAngie Burgon

Director of Sales

“I started working in the senior living industry in 2008 and immediately found out that I had a passion for helping seniors.  I began my career with Sunrise Senior Living in 2013 as a Designated Care Manager, and I was promoted to the Director of Sales in 2016.

The most rewarding part of my job is offering a solution to families, whether it is in the form of Sunrise or another resource. I enjoy witnessing the relief that seniors and their loved ones experience after making the transition into our community. My coworkers and residents have become an extension of my family and that is what I love most about my job. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, traveling, and spending time outdoors.”

Reminiscence Coordinator

“I began working for Sunrise Senior Living in 2005 as a Designated Care Manager at a community in California. After my family and I moved to Utah, I started working at Sunrise of Sandy as a lead care manager in our assisted living neighborhood. In October of 2016 I was promoted to the Reminiscence Coordinator and have loved it ever since.

I love the Sunrise mission and our resident-centered care philosophy. Spending time getting to know the residents and their families makes my work worthwhile each day.

I live in Saratoga Springs with my husband and two beautiful children.”

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator 

“In 2014 I started my career with Sunrise as a Designated Care Manager. After a few years I was promoted to Reminiscence Coordinator at Sunrise of Holladay and loved the relationships I was able to build with our residents and families. Just recently, I moved back to Sunrise of Sandy to become the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator. 

I am passionate about my job. My love for the residents and my desire to make each day great for them is my motivating force. I love to see their smiles and know that the activities we provide are increasing the quality of their lives. 

I am married with two wonderful teenage sons and live close by in Sandy.”

Life Enrichment Manager - Reminiscence

“I started as a Life Enrichment Manager at Sunrise in 2015 and absolutely love my job. Each day I get to come to work and make a difference in our residents lives, and I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do!  
My favorite part about my job is definitely the residents that I get to work with. They intrigue me with their unique lives and history. I find great joy in seeing them smile and find their own happiness at this new stage in their lives.

I am married with 8 children and 20 beautiful grandkids! We love to hike and spend a lot of time outdoors. For the past 3 years I have also been working at a treatment center for troubled teens. We take them into our home and are able to work with them and help get them back to where they need to be.“
