Davenport Staff Feature of the month
“Well done good and faithful servant” ~Matthew 25:21
We are pleased to announce our Employee Feature of the Month: Brandy O’Neill
Caregiving comes naturally to Brandy, but it wasn’t until her dad became sick, that she realized that she was born to care for others. After earning a degree in accounting, Brandy went to work for her dad who built a successful trucking company. She had to learn the business from the ground up, but by the time her dad was no longer able to tend to the daily operations of his company, Brandy was ready to take over the business, which she ran by herself for twelve years. Then when her dad required fulltime care, Brandy closed the business and took care of him herself, for the last several years of his life. It was during that time that Brandy’s dad encouraged her to go back to school to get her nursing degree. He told her that it was her calling.
Brandy earned her nursing degree in 2012, and a year later she started looking around for a nursing home that she felt would be a good fit for her. After working a year at Kahl Home, Brandy chose to come here because she had heard that we take good care of our residents. Now, nearly four years later, she’s one of the reasons the Lutheran Home maintains that reputation. Brandy loves the residents and especially enjoys caring for the rehab patients because she loves to help people heal so they can get back home to their families. She says, “I know that there are people out there that are speaking well about the care the residents receive from me and from us. That matters to me.”
God bless you, Brandy and your work at the Davenport Lutheran Home Communities.
Thank you for all that you do!
