Kimberly ToddKim Todd— Team Member Since 2014.

Director of Sales

"I began my career with Sunrise Senior Living in 2014 when my mother moved into Brighton Gardens of Northville.  During my tour I was so impressed with what I was seeing and hearing I knew it would be a great fit for my mother, but I also knew I wanted to be a part of the organization and I asked the Director of Sales how I could get a job with Sunrise.

I was the Sales Assistant at Brighton Gardens of Northville for over 4 years before moving to the West Bloomfield community as the Director of Sales.  When I’m not spending time with my Sunrise family I enjoy cooking and entertaining at home.  My husband Tim and I enjoy riding our bikes through Hines Drive, the historic homes area of Dearborn and hanging out with our 3 children, twin grandsons and 2 dogs.
Becoming a part of the Sunrise family has been one of the best decisions I’ve made.  Every day is a pleasure meeting and assisting families and their loved ones."

Business Office Coordinator

“I first came to Sunrise seeking a position in housekeeping, and soon after became the Business Office Coordinator and began attending college for my bachelors in health services administration. I find much happiness in helping our residents’ families with their billing statements and troubleshooting any team member issues. I also will often support other Sunrise communities.

During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my six wonderful children and my beautiful granddaughter.”

Because I have a background in event planning for hotels, this was the perfect fit for me. I enjoy getting to know our residents, singing with them and taking them out on the town! 

I have one son who lives in Florida, and I enjoy visiting with him.”

“Since joining the Sunrise of West Bloomfield team I’ve learned that this isn’t just a job or a career, it’s a way of life. The culture at Sunrise is different…there is a family atmosphere that cannot be ignored. Our staff members are caring, attentive, knowledgeable and professional. I am often moved when I see our care managers engage with a resident, they work hard to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. I made a commitment when I was hired that I would do my best every day, to help keep our residents happy, healthy and safe. I’m proud to be a part of this team and I enjoy working for such a wonderful company.”
