Jeff Folsom team member profile

Jeff Folsom

Executive Director 

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

Director of Sales

“I have been with Sunrise for almost three years.  I worked as a certified nursing assistant for more than four years prior to coming to Sunrise.  I began my career at Sunrise as a lead care manager and moved into sales and marketing shortly after.  

The best part of my job is helping family members and spending time with our residents. I love working at Sunrise because we are a big family; everyone has someone else’s best interest in mind. 

I live in Herriman with my husband and we love to travel and spend time outdoors.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I began my career with Sunrise in 2008 as a care manager. I was quickly promoted to a lead care manager position and have been the Assisted Living Coordinator since 2015.  

I have been a certified nursing assistant for 11 years and chose to work at Sunrise because of the individualized care that the organization provides.  I consider myself lucky to be able to come to work each day - I love my job.  I value the relationships I’ve been able to build with the residents and families because of the profound impact they’ve made on my life. 

I live in Eagle Mountain with my husband and our three children.”

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. I then transitioned to assisted living coordinator and became Reminiscence coordinator in October 2016.
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 Salt Lake with my husband and two beautiful children.”
