ilona severna park team memberIlona Meyer

Executive Director

“I have been with Sunrise for more than 16 years and have an additional 20 years of healthcare (nursing) experience prior to joining the Sunrise team.

I enjoy working alongside my incredible team and providing the best possible service to our residents. The best part of working at Sunrise is our residents’ sincere appreciation of all that we do.

In my spare time, I love traveling with family, gardening, biking and hiking.”

Director of Sales

“I have had the pleasure of being part of this family here at Sunrise for the past 16 years.  I’ve worked in both operations and sales, and have a great deal of knowledge of the senior population and how they can best be served through our Sunrise Signature Experience. 

I enjoy assisting families in distress by showing them how Sunrise can enrich the lives of their loved ones. I take great pleasure in creating pleasant moments for our residents with something as simple as a smile or a hug.

In my free time, I love spending time with my two young boys.  Whether we are playing a board game or hanging out together on the baseball field, spending quality time with my kids is by far my favorite thing to do.”

Shannon Burgoon

Director of Sales

“I have worked at Sunrise of Severna Park for over a year now, but I worked at this same community when I was in high school and college. After college, I worked for another senior living community as the Director of Sales for several years before returning to Sunrise of Severna Park.

I enjoy helping and guiding families and their loved ones to find the right senior living support. My favorite part of working at Sunrise is our residents. I appreciate the way Sunrise strives to fulfill all aspects of quality of life for our residents. 

In my free time, I like to spend time with my husband, family and friends.”

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have worked with Sunrise for the past 10 years. I started as a care manager and then worked my way up to lead medication technician, and now am proud to say that I am the Assisted Living Coordinator.

I enjoy working with all of my team members to ensure our residents are getting the best care possible. At Sunrise, I am able to go to work every day and make a difference in the lives of our residents.

When I’m not at work, I love boating, barbequing, hanging out on the beach and all things summer!”
