We’re pleased to introduce you to a few of the team members who make Sunrise Villa Tuckahoe such a special place!
"I began my career in 1993 as a certified Nursing Assistant in skilled care. My passion to work with seniors grew as I worked in several different roles before coming to Sunrise Senior Living in 2008 to be a Reminiscence Coordinator. My passion to be an advocate for seniors is the reason Sunrise was such an easy career choice. I began as an Assisted Living Facility Administrator in 2015 and enjoyed being a resource to residents, family and staff.
Throughout my career at Sunrise, I became a Certified Validation Teacher as well as a facilitator for the Alzheimer's Association. I love being part of the Sunrise Family."
"I began my career with Sunrise as Director of Facilities and acquired additional responsibilities as a GS trainer. Prior to being at Tuckahoe, I was at another local Senior living where I was the Director of physical Operations for five years. Before entering senior care, my experience included Field Engineer, construction superintendent, and operations management within the apartment industry."
"I grew up in Richmond, VA area. Growing up, my Grandfather was my best friend. To this day, I still remember visiting him at his assisted living community and talking to him about the Atlanta Braves game the night before. I have always been told I have a true compassion for others. Sunrise allows me to assist families and support them during the process of searching for senior care options for a loved one.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my wife and two dogs, Hadley and Fenway."
“My heart is a little bigger every day when I leave work than it was when I arrived.”
"I started my career as a Recreational Therapist and I knew early on that working with a senior population was where I belonged. After 25 plus years working as a therapist, Rehab Director, and Assisted Living Coordinator I transitioned into a role of Human Resource Representative and combined my loves of working with seniors and staff development. I love being part of the Sunrise Family and I believe Sunrise Villa Tuckahoe has the best staff and best residents there are!"
"As a teenager I entered the workforce as a dining room server at a retirement community and I quickly learned that my spirt to serve was helpful and appreciated by those in need. I enjoyed listening to the stories and experiences the residents shared with me, I felt I was part of their family and that left an impression on me that would lead me back to the senior living industry. After college I became a Director of Operations for dining Services, Later a Director of Dining Services, and in 2018 became the business Office Coordinator at Sunrise Villa Tuckahoe. I have been in senior living for 15 years and truly enjoy interacting with our residents and families and feel privileged to be part of their lives.
"I have over three decades in the food service industry. I specialize in customer service and finding unique ways to raise resident satisfaction and the guest experience. As a former partner of Metro Grill and sous chef at the Trick Dog Café. I have spent years successfully honing my culinary skills. I also managed accounts for large culinary services companies to develop my budgetary knowledge. It was a connection made during that time that reached out and brought me onboard with Sunrise, where I have happily remained. Currently, my focus how to best bring the Sunrise experience to residents during these difficult times.
My favorite part of working at Sunrise is the great team members and community environment.
When not at work, I can be found watching bad science fiction movies with my children and dog or working on my aquariums."
