Meet some of the exemplary members of our team here at Sunrise of Springfield, VA.
"Finding the best solution for a loved one can be an overwhelming process for most families. As the Director of Sales for Sunrise of Springfield I enjoy being a resource for them. I believe in Sunrise, in our mission and values, but most of all I believe in our team. We have people that truly cares for our residents and want the best for them and I am proud to be part of this team.
I graduated in Marketing and Advertising in 2008, and worked many years in the sports and entertainment industry. Two of my biggest professional achievements were working for the FIFA World Cup (2014) and the Olympic Games (2016), both in Brazil.
I started my career with Sunrise in 2017 as Activities and Volunteer Coordinator and began my journey in the Marketing and Sales department in 2019.
In my spare time, I like watching movies, TV shows, and enjoying time with my dog, a very cute black-and-white Shih Tzu. I love going out for dinner and hiking.
It is an honor to be part of the Sunrise family and work together to champion quality life for all seniors!"
“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."
"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 began my career with Sunrise in 2011 as a medication technician. It did not take me long to realize that working with seniors is what I want to do, for the rest of my career. While working at Sunrise, I earned my LPN license and became a full time Wellness Nurse.
This summer, I was promoted to Reminiscence Coordinator. I am so excited to embark on this new journey with the residents, in our memory care neighborhood. Throughout my career with Sunrise, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, which I bring to this new role. Being able to utilize my nursing skills is an added bonus. Everyday, I strive to preserve the dignity of my residents and help bring joy to their days! I love working with the team here at Sunrise of Springfield and making a difference in the lives of those we serve."
