Cindie Burgazzoli, Director of SalesCindie Burgazzoli

Director of Sales

"I have worked at Sunrise for nine years. I began my career as the life enrichment manager in our reminiscence neighborhood, then went on to become the activity & volunteer coordinator. I chose my new path of director of sales to bring all of the wonderful experiences I had with the residents to families looking to move their loved ones here. Sunrise has truly become my second home and family.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my children especially video chatting with my son stationed overseas in the U.S. Marines."

Danielle Carilli  

Assisted Living Coordinator

“I have always loved working with seniors. I began volunteering in nursing homes at age 13 and continued working in geriatric facilities while going to college and completing my master’s degree. My favorite part of my job is working with our residents and families. I have a wonderful team of care managers who take great care of our residents and make coming to work every day a pleasure. 

When I’m not at Sunrise, I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful children, friends and family.”

Veronica Miranda  

Lead Care Manager

“For 13 years, I worked as a lead care manager in our Reminiscence Neighborhood and have spent the past year working in our Assisted Living Neighborhood. My favorite part of working at Sunrise Senior Living is interacting with the residents while I am giving care. Having team members that feel like family is why I look forward to being at work every day. 

Outside of work, I love reading and spending time with my husband of 35 years and our five grandchildren.”
