Jan Howell

Executive Director

Jan joined the Sunrise team nearly five years ago. After working for a competitor for four years prior to joining Sunrise, she says that she’s certain that Sunrise is best. Now her mother-in-law is a Sunrise resident!

Jan’s favorite part of her day is spending time with residents, families and her fellow team members. 

Jan has been married for more than 30 years and has three children, a wonderful son-in-law and a beautiful grandson.  She enjoys family time, attending concerts and being outdoors.  

Laura Kujawski Sunrise of Troy Team MemberArikka Tobe 

Director of Sales 

Arikka has more than 10 years of experience in the senior living industry. She describes the immense sense of fulfillment she receives by supporting seniors and their families during their search for a senior living environment and assisting them through their initial transition into the community. It is an immeasurable reward to offer a solution to seniors that provides them with security, purpose and quality of life, Arikka said.

Arikka is a “firefighter wife” and the mother of two young boys.  She spends most of her free time trying to match the energy level of her boys and manages to find peace of mind by painting and practicing yoga.
