Our Leaders

The heart of CountryHouse really shines through in our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.

Brandie Hesson-Bullard started as Executive Director of CountryHouse in Kearney in December 2021. She relocated to Nebraska, her home state, from Washington to join our team. Before joining CountryHouse, she served as Community Relations Director at a senior living community in Olympia, WA.
