Sunrise Team Member since 2014

“My journey to Sunrise came from a series of random unexpected decisions, that culminated to becoming the one of the most gratifying experiences in my life. I had recently moved to Southern Utah to work at Olive Garden, and the girl that I sat next to in the server training class was the Residential Manager at Sunrise that I ended up replacing a few years later. After working together for a few months as servers she asked me if I had ever thought about getting a second job. “I think I might have the perfect job for you, if you are interested.” And, boy, was she right! Within the first few hours of my first shift as a youth mentor I knew that this program was special and that this was the start of a very long career for me. In all the years I’ve been a member of the Sunrise team, I have had the opportunity to hold many different positions where I have grown as a person more than I ever imagined I could. Working with the students and helping them build lives worth living is what got me in the door, but the culture, passion, and compassion of my fellow teammates is what has kept me here.”

“I have thought about leaving Sunrise several times, but there is something that keeps me grounded here. Sunrise is a place where you create real life change not only in the students' lives but in your own life as well. Sunrise becomes your family. Your co-workers end up becoming some of your best friends and everyone wants what is best for you. Additionally, the relationships you gain with the students become so special and you quickly realize that they are teaching you as much as you are teaching them. Sunrise has helped heal countless individuals and families. Let it change you and yours.”

REBECCA MCELROY

Sunrise Team Member since 2015

“I heard about Sunrise through my college career advisor and even hearing about the position from her, I’ll be honest, I thought it sounded awful! I had no desire to work with teenagers. However, I was graduating with my Psychology degree and had no experience on my resume so I thought “what the heck, how bad could it be.” My goal accepting the position was to get some experience in the psychology field and move on…. That was 7 years ago. I started at Sunrise hoping I didn’t hate it and I have stayed because, even through my most difficult experiences working here, I have loved every minute of it. Seeing a student the day that they arrive vs the day they leave and knowing you were just a small piece of the puzzle that helped them is the most rewarding experience. The culture, team oriented environment, and my teams overall love for what we do is what motivates me and keeps me coming back. Sunrise is a company of growth minded individuals all working towards a common goal which is to help heal families. I have been so lucky that I have had the opportunity to grow and be challenged in an environment that supports me as a person and a professional.”

AMANDA MCNATT

Sunrise Team Member since 2013

“Sunrise began as a part time job that worked with my schedule in between going to school and taking care of my son. I had no idea this world even existed. At the time, I was studying criminology and wanted to work as a probation officer in the juvenile justice system. Sunrise was a place I felt I could use my talents to truly make a difference in the lives of young women. It is a place that is in line with my values and incredibly fulfilling. To see a young woman and a family come to our doors with little hope left in them, and having the experience to confidently say - you will get there, things will get better, you will get your daughter back - and to offer that hope to families is what keeps me going. Not only has Sunrise been a place of growth and healing for so many students and families, it's a place where I have grown both personally and professionally. I never imagined when I started as a youth mentor in 2013, that today I would be the Executive Director of Sunrise. Sunrise continues to offer so many opportunities for growth whether you are interested in an entry level part time job, or a career in mental health.”

EMILY MCFARLAND

Sunrise Team Member since 2019

“After seven years of continually moving around the country, I found my way to Sunrise by coincidence. I was new to the St. George area and I expressed to a stranger that I was looking for a more stable job and a place to permanently settle down. He suggested looking into employment at Sunrise, and I applied on the spot. I had never heard of a Residential Treatment Center before, but with a degree in a related field and a passion for helping teenagers, it seemed like a good fit. I not only found a position at Sunrise, but so much more! Working at Sunrise is more than just a job, it is a place where you are surrounded by a team who cares about you, challenges you, and wants to see you succeed. It is such a unique experience to work somewhere that is regularly investing in its employees and creating opportunities for growth. I have had the chance to fill a few different positions during my time at Sunrise from which I have developed new and important skills for my own life, communication, and relationships while having so much fun with the staff and students along the way!”
