David Haselman—Team Member Since 2017

Interim Executive Director

"I grew up in the senior living industry by volunteering and working with my family to help support the communities that they operated in.  Most recently, I was working in the hospitality industry, where I had the opportunity to perform and gain experience in all roles. My favorite part of my job is developing and growing with my team to be the best people for our Residents. I am I honored to serve our residents and Team Members every single day.

I am a big fan of the outdoors.  In my spare time, I like to do as much biking, hiking, fishing as I can, when the weather is warm!"

Executive Director

“I’ve had a passion for working with seniors since I started volunteering with Sunrise in the 6th grade. It’s my mission to ensure that our community brings great days to all of our residents through thoughtful gestures, engaging programming and individualized care. With our great location, one of my personal favorite things to do is take residents shopping and try new restaurants. I love helping make my residents’ lives begin again once they are here with us.”

“I have always had a passion for working with the elderly. My grandparents do not live close by, but through the care I provide daily, I feel like I am caring for my own loved ones. Sunrise gives me the opportunity to care for the elderly, but to also spend more time in getting to know the individual person I am caring for. I learn so much about their lives and personalities. It makes me happy that I can bring joy to a resident’s day in caring for their needs and nurturing their spirit. I like working with other team members who have the same respect that I do about quality of life. It is a nice environment to work in.”

Lead Care Manager

“It gives me such joy and fulfillment working with the elderly. Working at Sunrise gives me the opportunity to do what I’m passionate about. I am a lead Designated Care Manager which gives me the privilege to know and care for our residents personally. I enjoy getting them ready for the day and tucking them in at night. Sitting and chatting with our residents about their growing up, colleges, careers, pets, travel, families, the list goes on. I also enjoy getting to meet their families. No regrets working here, I only wish I would have started sooner.”

EmmyEmmy - Team Member Since 2016

Community Pet

Emmy is a very snuggly pup and always happily greets anyone who visits Sunrise of Wilmette! She is a mix of many different breeds which gives her an interesting appearance but she has the biggest heart and she truly LOVES our residents! Some of Emmy’s favorite things are walks with our residents, and snuggling up in her favorite cozy chair for a nap. Emmy is always looking for someone to snuggle with, and happily joins some of our residents when they go to sleep for the night. Emmy looks forward to meeting you when you visit Sunrise of Wilmette.
