Skilled Nursing Team Members:


Liza JohnLiza John

Director of Sales, Skilled Nursing

“I have been a team member here at The Jefferson for more than 20 years. First, I worked as a certified nursing assistant. Since then, I have worked as the unit secretary, in our medical records group, in central supply and now in my current position as the Director of Sales.

The people with whom I work are my second family. I truly enjoy coming to work each day and helping guests and families in their time of need. At Sunrise, I feel like I’m part of a community.

In my spare time, I enjoy sitting on my couch with a cup of tea. I also like to spend time with my son, his family and my precious granddaughter.”




Francois JeanFrancois Jean

Licensed Practical Nurse

“I have been working with Sunrise at The Jefferson since 2009. I started as a certified nursing assistant in skilled nursing, then worked for a while as a medication care manager in our Reminiscence Neighborhood. Now I have returned to skilled nursing as a licensed practical nurse.

Customer service is my favorite part of the job. I enjoy interacting with our guests and family members, inquiring about their likes and dislikes, and addressing any concerns or non-resolved issues that happened in the previous shifts.

In my spare time, I like to spend quality time with family and friends. I also get involved in religious activities and do volunteer work, like fundraising for a clean water project in Haiti.”
