“I have 10 years of experience with Sunrise Senior Living and I have served in several roles at both Sunrise of Vancouver and Sunrise of Victoria. My favourite part of my job is interacting with residents and hearing their incredible and inspiring life stories. 

I enjoy having a community of caring team members around me. Here at Sunrise of Victoria, we foster a wonderful sense of family through our residents and their families and friends.

When I’m not supporting my Sunrise team, I spend my personal time reading, hiking and being outdoors in beautiful British Columbia.”
