Tamme Hackett 

Executive Director 


“I have been with Sunrise of Wilmington for two years and have worked in the senior living industry for more than 10 years.  I have a deep passion for creating meaningful living experiences for my residents.  

I consider it a distinct privilege and joy to serve the residents and families at Sunrise of Wilmington every day. Our community is a part of who I am and an integral part of my life.  

In the rare times that I am away from the community, I enjoy my hanging out and relaxing with my children and laughing with my friends.  I am a political junkie as well!”

Nancy Curran

Director of Sales


“Prior to joining the Sunrise of Wilmington team, I was a partner with MyCareConnect, serving as the Chief Marketing Officer and the founder and as the Chief Operating Officer of the company’s adult and senior care services. My move to the senior care industry was inspired by my late mother, who was a resident of Sunrise of Wilmington.

I love to provide comfort, guidance and solutions to individuals and families during an often difficult and challenging time.

I am grateful for my daily interaction with current and prospective residents and their families. I am comforted by the knowledge that my company’s mission statement, foundational belief and Principles of Service match my own. 

Outside of work, I like to spend a relaxing time with family and friends, whether it is over a meal or on a golf course.”

“I have been with Sunrise for 12 years. My favorite part of my job is creating pleasant days for our residents. At Sunrise, I am part of a great team that strives to do it best daily.

Sheri team member profile

Sheri Parsons

Reminiscence Coordinator


“I have worked at Sunrise since 2008 but have had the pleasure of working with seniors as a Certified Nursing Assistant since 1989. In 2010, I was awarded Caregiver of the Year from the State of Delaware. 

My passion is working with residents who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. One of the best aspects of my job is working directly with the seniors; they have taught me so much about life and about myself. I also have the privilege of being a facilitator for the Alzheimer’s Association and we hold a support group the third Tuesday of every month. This allows me to connect with family members who are coping with these difficult times. 

In my spare time, I am a comfort creature kind of a gal who likes to pamper herself with shopping and massages.”


Brian Amery team member profile

Brian Amery

Dining Service Coordinator


“In addition to serving as the Dining Services Coordinator, I am also a Cluster Leader and help to support seven area Sunrise communities in the surrounding Pennsylvania region.

I am a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and worked locally at the Hotel DuPont for 15 years. I was also an Executive Chef for Fieldstone Golf Club and the Sodexo, Aramark and Compass Group corporations. As the Executive Chef for Gate Gourmet of Dulles Virginia Airport, my team produced 15,000 to 20,000 meals a day for 19 different International Airlines.

I take great pride in helping to produce delicious ‘home cooked’ meals for our residents here at Sunrise of Wilmington. Another great aspect of working for Sunrise is the work-life balance that enables me to spend with my wife, Lori, and almost 4-year-old daughter, Chloe.

In my spare time, I enjoy tropical vacations with my family, playing golf and listening to Jimmy Buffett. I also enjoy cooking for my friends and family at home.”


Julie Gill team member profile

Julia Gill

“I have been part of the team at Sunrise of Wilmington for almost five years. Prior to joining Sunrise, I was an activity assistant for another company.

The part of my job I enjoy most is the time spent with our residents. I also enjoy working for large, international corporations.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends.”
