Meet some of the talented members of our team here at Sunrise of Upper St. Clair, PA. 

Tamara Erny | Lead Care Manager

Tamara Erny

Lead Care Manager

Tamara has been serving our residents and their families since August of 2008. She has spent her Sunrise career as part of the team in our Reminiscence Neighborhood.  She loves that fact that she spends her work days taking care of others.  

Encouraging Independence is Tamara’s favorite Sunrise Principle of Service. She spends her days ensuring that her residents find a sense of purpose in their life by providing them with the framework to make independent decisions throughout their days.  

"I love being a part of our team here at Sunrise of Upper St. Clair,” Tamara said. “I believe everyone has something special to bring to the table and I love seeing how all of our differences come together and make us an amazing team!” We are lucky to have someone like Tamara to serve and love our residents.

Tiffany joined our Sunrise team in August of 2013 as a care manager in our Personal Care Neighborhood. Though this is where her senior living career has started, she is now in pursuit of a nursing degree with the hope of being able to continue her Sunrise career.  

Tiffany is a true advocate for the Sunrise mission. She believes that Preserving Dignity is the most important of our Sunrise Principles of Service. “It is my belief that each resident deserves the utmost respect in taking care of their daily needs,” Tiffany said. “Each resident is very special to me and I treat them as I would my own family.  I look forward to being able to spend quality time with them each and every time I step into the community.”

Jamie joined the Sunrise team as a care manager in March of 2010.  She has a natural way of connecting with our residents and took on the role as Activities and Volunteer Coordinator shortly after joining our team.  

“I have the best job in the whole world,” Jamie said. “It is my goal every day to make my residents happy.  What could be better than that?!”  

Jamie’s favorite Principle of Service is Nurturing the Spirit. Jamie finds a way of honing in on the unique needs and interests of our residents, which is reflected in the variety of activities she plans.  

“I love really getting to know the residents and providing them with opportunities to truly express themselves. Whether it’s through art, music or movement, my hope is that our residents find solace in knowing that they are truly special and have so much to share with the world.”
