Sunrise of Wayland Team Member Betsy

Betsy Willard

Director of Sales

“I have been with Sunrise Senior Living since 2000. I began in our Weston community but transferred to Wayland where I have been working ever since.

I love meeting with families and hearing their stories. Working at Sunrise of Wayland allows me the pleasure of meeting with residents and families who are looking into next steps.  I believe it is my responsibility to help educate people on available options to ensure their need are met—both in the short- and long-term.

I am so proud to tell people about Sunrise and share the benefits of living in one of our communities, specifically about our care continuum, team members, and wonderful residents. In many ways, Sunrise sells itself when someone visits.

In my spare time, I love to travel, read, and spend time with my husband, daughters, and extended family.”

Resident Care Director

"I have been with Sunrise since October 2017, and it is the first time I’ve worked at an Assisted Living.  Prior to working at Sunrise, my entire career was based in the non-profit sector of Social Services.  I was a PACT (Program of Assertive Community Treatment) Nurse, helping clients realize what health and wellness meant to them and helping them achieve it.

My favorite part of working at Sunrise are the Residents.  I have a high regard for growing old and all that comes with it.  I lost my mother at the young age of 13 and always wonder what she would’ve been like.  I try my best to make sure that every Resident is treated like family, and taken care of to the best of our abilities. I mean we have a 105 year old here, think of the life she’s had.

In my free time I enjoy being outside with my family. Playing baseball and softball with my daughter, and playing with my 3 dogs.  I also really enjoy cooking, but don’t do much of that in the summer."

Susan Hobart

Activity and Volunteer Coordinator

“I have worked at Sunrise of Wayland for almost two decades, with 11 years and counting as activities and volunteer coordinator. I love my job! As I tell all new and potential residents, ‘I have a great job, and we will have a lot of fun!’

I enjoy working with all of my team members because we all have one thing in common: We provide the best care to all residents with dignity, comfort, and laughter.

I have three beautiful daughters and one unbelievable, precious granddaughter. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, photography, and playing with Play-Doh!”

Emily Allen

Designated Care Manager

“Since 2004, I have been working as a lead Designated Care Manager and medication technician. Even though my own home is far away from Sunrise of Wayland, I don’t mind the long commute because the people here make it all worth it.

Having relationships with our residents is like having many grandparents under the same roof. The residents, their families, other team members, and management make me glad to be at Sunrise.”
