jasmine montgomeryJasmine Montgomery

Executive Director

"I am a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator with over 10 years of experience working in long term care settings. I am experienced in providing care to patients and residents of private and state-owned long-term care facilities which include skilled nursing facilities, chronically ill hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, assisted/independent living facilities, group homes, and retirement communities. It has been my lifelong passion to provide resident centered care and improve the way that we take care of our older adults. My favorite part about working at Sunrise is having the opportunity to connect with our residents. Our residents are full of interesting stories and most of all wisdom.

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, volunteering with my sorority, and spending time with my love ones."

In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, hiking, trying new foods, traveling, and spending time with my family."

Assisted Living Coordinator 

“I realized my fulfillment in helping seniors when I was the main care provider for my mom, who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and my dad, who was diagnosed with dementia. During those trying months, I made it my mission to keep their spirits high and sense of self intact.  The time spent with them helped guide me to join the Sunrise of Springfield team and help others enjoy their golden years, which grew to be my passion. 

I joined the team in 2004 ready to embark on a journey to help encourage independence and freedom of choice for our residents. The joy this brought me on a daily basis assisted in my growth with the company.  It has become my goal to ‘champion the quality of life for all seniors."

Resident Care Director

"I am the Resident Care Director here at Sunrise of Springfield. I began my career with Sunrise in 2017, as a Wellness Nurse. I have been in nursing for 10 years, and am so honored to share my talents, in this way. One of the best parts about being a Nurse is getting to work with diverse groups of people. It is my passion to serve residents and educate them regarding their health related issues. I love building collaborative relationships that improve continuity of care with our residents and their families, my fellow coordinators, doctors, nurses and care professionals. They say – “You must have a big heart to serve seniors,” - my heart is full! There is no greater feeling of gratitude and satisfaction than when I am serving others.

In my free time, I enjoy going for walks with my family and our dog, listening to music, dinner outings and shopping with my daughters, who are my best friends."

I am so excited to embark on this new journey with the residents, in our memory care neighborhood.
