Dolan Memory Care Homes at Shannon“I have been in the medical field for the past 12 years. I started out as a Registered Medical Assist and Clinical Research Coordinator working in an Endocrinologist office. After four years in a clinical setting I decided to go to nursing school. I have been working as a nurse in long term care for the past six years, starting out as a charge nurse and then MDS Coordinator/Nurse Manager. I loved working with the residents, but always felt like something was missing—that I could do more to make a bigger impact.
I heard about the Dolan model of care and had to check it out. Once I toured a house, I knew it was where I was meant to be. Being able to work alongside people who share the same passion for improving the quality of life for our elders is truly a blessing. I think what I love most is having time to spend one on one listening to the resident’s, hearing their stories, and learning how to care for them as a whole person.”
Brittany has been married 5 years and has a four year old son. When not working she enjoys concerts, hunting, fishing, boating, and anything outdoors. Thank you for all that you do, Brittany!

Dolan Memory Care Homes at LimerickI have worked in the nursing field for over 30 years. While most of my friends were working at fast food jobs, I was working in a long term care facility as a certified nurse assistant. I then spent several years working in a hospital before going to nursing school. My nursing experience has been primarily acute medicine, cardiology, and the ICU.
After 20+ years I worked my way back to geriatric care. My last job was as an Assistant Director of Nursing at a rehab facility and long term memory care unit. My grandfather had Parkinson’s Dementia, and I quickly learned what doesn’t work for residents with dementia. After learning about the model of care that Dolan offers, and seeing the beautiful neighborhoods and homey atmosphere, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I’ve always worked for large healthcare systems, and I wanted the more personal experience that Dolan provides. Memory care is where my heart is, and Dolan does it the best way possible.
I was born and raised in St. Louis. I have been married to my husband Pete for over 20 years, and I have a beautiful daughter named Claire. I love dogs, and I have two crazy boxers, Stanley and Maggie; they definitely helped with the empty nest. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and crafting. My family jokes that I can turn anything into a craft project. Family is very important to me, and I look forward to growing my family by building meaningful relationships with my residents, their families, and my co-workers.
