Tenure at Sunrise Senior Living:
“I have been with Sunrise since 2010."

Experience in Senior Living: 
“I was born and raised in the senior living industry, with a mother who spent her career serving and advocating for our aging population. I pursued a Master’s degree in social work as I continued to serve in the field and have since worked in senior living for 12 years. I have personally been a part of my own family’s decisions revolving around a loved one’s care needs, so this matter is very dear to my heart.”

Why do I love working for Sunrise? 
“Sunrise has stayed true to its mission and core values. We regularly do a self-check to ensure we are adhering to what we say we do. Although we are always striving to be better we are not focused on being bigger...just better. The passion for serving seniors and their loved ones remain the heartbeat of what we do.”

My best advice to families or seniors looking for senior living: 
“This is a very personal and emotional decision. The best way to get a sense of a community is to come in and visit, and see it for yourself. I recommend that you talk with the caregivers, the residents, and other family members who have a loved one at that community. Ultimately follow your heart, because you know what you want and need for your loved one, which is the very best!”
