Director of Sales

"I chose a career in senior living because I wanted to help families in their search for a loving, nurturing, and purposeful community for their loved ones, which is the core culture of Sunrise. I also wanted to work in an environment where I knew that the dignity of the residents is preserved each day. I have peace of mind every day knowing that our residents are well cared for and respected. I treat them like I would my own family. The best part of my job is that I get a lot of hugs from our residents and their families. 

In my free time, I enjoy biking, going to musicals/plays, hiking and getting together with my family and friends."

Resident Care Director

"I always believe that nursing profession is a calling. Wherever you work as a nurse, there is always that sense of purpose and fulfillment with regards to patient care. Working with Sunrise is so rewarding as I am confident that we are able to provide a loving and fostering home for our residents. At Sunrise, we are all family. We care for our team members, our residents and their family.

For those who knows me and those who doesn't, I am a basketball mom. I enjoy watching and cheering for my kids basketball. I enjoy cooking, singing, working out, travelling and spending time with family and friends."

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.”
