Director of Sales

"Prior to joining Sunrise of Victoria over 6 years ago, I worked in sales and event planning in the hospitality industry. I hold a diploma in operations management and studied sales and marketing. My favorite part of my job is working with families and seniors, and helping make those difficult decisions a little bit easier. I want to ensure that seniors and their loved ones receive the quality care and the dignity they deserve. 

At Sunrise, I work alongside an incredible and inspirational team. It is a very warm family atmosphere. In my spare time, I enjoy the spectacular nature we have here and around Victoria."

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

"I joined the Sunrise Team in 2007 immediately after completing the Home Support and Care Aide Program at Camosun College. I have since taken on various roles working at Sunrise and on the Island Health community. For many years, I have been privileged to have met so many wonderful people, residents, families, and coworkers alike. Sunrise has been my second home and is family to me. 

Since taking on the role of Activities and Volunteer Coordinator, I have been given an incredible opportunity to create meaningful and purposeful moments for our residents. It has been one spectacular experience.

In my free time, I love to watch movies or tv shows, read books, go for hikes, and try new restaurants in Victoria with my husband Aaron. I also love to travel and have been to 12 countries. My favourite cities are Paris and Rio de Janeiro because of their vibrance and opulence. In the not so distant future, I would love to be able to travel to Japan and Kenya."

Lead Care Manager

"I value the care and attention I’m able to provide to our residents each day. It’s my mission to ensure they all receive the best possible care. During my 15 years with Sunrise, I have had the opportunities to learn and grow. Sunrise embraces diversity and celebrates a multicultural heritage. 

When I’m not at Sunrise, I enjoy watching television news and spending time with my religious community."

"Before coming to Sunrise, I had just completed my diploma for Contemporary Music Performance on the Fiddle (violin). I came to Sunrise during the middle of the pandemic in 2020, due to musical entertainment being put on hold, and discovered an amazing workplace for me to thrive and grow in administration and in people skills!  I grew up playing old time tunes in care homes across my home province of Saskatchewan, and since moving to BC I have found joy in being able to continue playing my fiddle weekly for the residents. 

There are many things I enjoy about Sunrise!  As a people person, working the front desk lets me interact with the residents, their visitors, and all of the lovely Sunrise staff on a daily basis."
