Experience in Senior Living:

My background is in social work and I have always enjoyed the healthcare field and helping families in need. I have been working in senior living since 2006. My journey started in a nursing home, working in the therapy department. That is where I fell in love with the aging population. I began working with Sunrise in 2008 in a memory care community as the director of sales. In 2012, I became the director of sales for independent living, assisted living, and memory care at Sunrise, before transitioning to my current role.

Why do I love working for Sunrise?

I love working for Sunrise because the Sunrise mission allows me to be a resource for families during overwhelming times in their lives. The Sunrise principle of service is to always treat the resident as an individual, and the personalization of our care is what really sets us apart in the industry. Sunrise has always been an innovator in senior living, and it gives me great joy knowing our seniors are getting the best care from the most passionate and dedicated team. Every day I see the peace of mind that Sunrise brings to families and the exceptional care that we provide.

My best advice to families or seniors looking for senior living:

My best advice for families looking for senior living is to visit communities—get a feel for the team and the setting your loved one will call home. Find trusted and knowledgeable people to provide the information needed in order to make the best decision for your family. I encourage you to be proactive so as to avoid the need to place a family member in an emergency situation.
