"I have been a Licensed Assisted Living Administrator since 2001 and have over 28 years of working in the field of geriatrics. I was the former Executive Director at the Sunrise of Westfield before joining the new development at Sunrise of Summit. I received my Master’s Degree in Gerontology and health care from the School of Social Work at Rutgers University and an undergraduate degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland. I have worked extensively in hospital settings but my area of expertise has been in the marketing and operations of assisted living communities in New Jersey. I have been an adjunct instructor at Rutgers Continuing Education Department for the School of Social Work and have been a presenter at numerous conferences for many aging organizations over the years.
I believe that my passion for getting to know and develop a caring relationship with my residents and their families stems from my experience growing up with my maternal grandmother who lived with our family. I love listening to the life stories of residents in any community and finding ways to keep my residents engaged and active.
When not at our Sunrise community, I spend time with my husband and boys. My family loves to learn about other cultures and people from other countries and we have travelled to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, India, Africa, Europe and Asia. Our family’s goal is to explore more of the US states in the upcoming years!"
"I have been with Sunrise Senior Living since June of 2018 and had the distinct privilege to take on the role of Director of Sales at the new Sunrise of Summit in August of 2019.
My favorite part of my Director of Sales position is meeting with the families and prospective residents and talking to them about why their first and only choice should be Sunrise Senior Living. The reason why? Sunrise is the very best in care! Our care is resident centered which is so important since every resident is difference and their care needs are different. We understand details matter. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for our seniors.
I feel such a sense of accomplishment and pride working for Sunrise. I love the company as a whole; how they treat their employees is amazing. Their world-wide reputation as the No. 1 assisted living/memory care company, based on customer satisfaction among its Senior Living Communities by J.D. Power, is such a powerful marketing tool! I want to work for a company that has that type of reputation, and I do. I am very proud to be associated with Sunrise Senior Living!
I spend my spare time reading, Pilates, visiting with my relatives and friends, and traveling to Lake George, NY whenever possible".
