Becky has been with Sunrise for a little over 7 years! Becky first started with Sunrise as a Resident Manager at our Klahaya Adult Family home. Since then she has been a part of many different programs, assisting in management and program coordination. In 2019 she took on her current role as a Resident Manager for the Colby Adult family home, and a Quality Assurance Program Coordinator for the Enhanced Services Facility. Becky states the following regarding her time at Sunrise…

“My favorite things about working at Sunrise are the amazing clients we get to serve on a daily basis and the wonderful teams I’ve been fortunate to work alongside. It does take a village to do the work we do here at Sunrise, and when we can assist those we serve in acclimating back into their communities, then that is the reward at the end of the day. Those of us who get into the healthcare field, do so because it is a calling and we heed the call. The need to increase the village is always front and foremost as there are always more we need to serve.”

“I enjoy interacting with our clients and being a positive part of their day. I also enjoy working alongside my coworkers. Even though I have had a handful of jobs before, I enjoy the Sunrise family the most.”

Randle West, Maintenance Lead

“In our work there is not a lot of instant gratification but when you have tilled the soil, planted seeds, watered and fertilized and done everything you can to plant a crop you reap the satisfaction of your labor. Such is with Sunrise when it comes to work with clients. It is a slow process and I continue to find the satisfaction of making a difference rewarding.”

Stuart Segall, Employment Specialist

“Those here at Sunrise ESF have been instrumental in their willingness to step out of the normal and try to truly make that difference in the lives of our residents and staff alike. If we as staff are having a bad day, so will our residents and visa-versa. It is a symbiotic relationship pure and simple. Sunrise ESF sees this and encourages all involved to have a voice. We are a team and value teamwork and creativity. I foresee a long future here with Sunrise and I welcome it fully!

Kevin Powley, Associate Administrator

“My growth is inseparable from the growth of my division, Community Trades & Careers. Thanks to incredible leadership, we adopted a platform that increased the transparency of our work and that made it much easier to manage and accomplish our documentation. In turn, this helps us to remain focused on the people we serve. And what do I enjoy most about working for Sunrise? It’s always been the people. The people I serve and the people I work alongside. I can’t even begin to imagine my life without these relationships. “
