Staff Spotlight Karyn
We’d like to start a new series spotlighting the integral members of our team here at Sunrise.  We know that without each of the member of our team, we could not be as successful in carrying out the personal mission of Sunrise to the individual and their families. So, without further ado, we’d like to begin with Karyn!
