Executive Director

"I have been with Sunrise since 2003, and I have had the pleasure of growing in this wonderful organization. I started my career as a care manager/medication care manager, I was then promoted to an Administrative Assistant and then finally a Business Office Coordinator. I was then accepted into the Executive Director in Training Program. It is an honor and a privilege to be part of this amazing Company. 

I enjoy spending time with our residents by getting to know their past and what brings them joy. The best part about working for Sunrise is making a difference in our residents and families lives and finding a way to champion the quality of life for each resident we care for. Also the friends and co-workers I meet at work that end up becoming like family.  

In my spare time, I enjoying spending time with my two boys and watching basketball."

"I love working at Sunrise of West Hills.  I oversee the Assisted Living Department and manage the incredible care that our managers provide for our residents.  Being the Assisted Living Coordinator gives me the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life every day.  

My interactions with my residents and their family members make my position so rewarding.  At night, I go home knowing that I made a difference for someone that day.  When my residents smile, I smile."
