Brandon’s journey in health care started when he was 18 when he became a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at Western Nebraska’s Veterans home where he specialized in dementia care, which he believed that it was his duty to give back to those who fought for the rights he has today the same way his father did. Brandon also plans to enroll and complete a master’s program in psychology, with a focus on eating disorders and post-partum wellness to make use of his well-rounded education and nutritional background. Post-Partum care is particularly important to Brandon due to watching the tenderness and resilience of his fiancé after delivering his wonderful pride and joy (daughter Nori), he plans to be able to offer the same support and care to future mothers and fathers.
As a former Collegiate Powerlifter, training and coaching are a regular activity in Brandon’s daily life. However, when he is not training Brandon enjoys spending as much time as possible with his daughter and fiancé doing various activities outdoors, most enjoyably gardening and walking his dog Oakley (a boxer/beagle mix).
