Brandy Muth joined the Concordia family in January of 2017 as a one-day-a week Silver Sneakers Instructor for our Concordia at Cabot independent living residents. A month later she accepted a part-time position as an Activities Aide for Cabot’s skilled unit and was promoted to Activities Director in Training in January of last year. Earlier this week Brandy was named Concordia at Cabot’s Director of Activities for skilled nursing!
Brandy describes Concordia as “caring” and told us why she chooses to work for our organization.
“Everything we do at Concordia is really based on our ability to care, in all ways, for our residents and all who we serve throughout our organization.”
She continued, “I chose Concordia because of the supportive work environment. Our leadership team is forward thinking and always receptive to new ideas. I also love our benefits package. Our retirement plan is excellent, we receive holiday bonuses and gifts, we go to a Pittsburgh Pirates game together, we have a Kennywood day – there are so many benefits that go beyond the typical benefits package and they are all great!”
Brandy enjoys spending time with her family outside of Concordia and has a very impressive hobby!
“My young adult kids are involved in swimming and band and I enjoy watching their involvement with these activities. I wish I could spend all of my time outside of Concordia at Disney! However, I do keep busy and enjoy reading and crafting with my Cricut. Marathon-running is another hobby of mine and I’ve completed five full marathons to date!”
Brandy is terrific with our residents and her love for them is evident in her actions and also her words.
“My favorite memory is spending my first working Christmas with a resident whose family was unable to be with her at the last minute.”
She also cites our residents as her main motivators to succeed.
“I just want to do the best job I can in order to enhance our residents daily lives. P.T. Barnum once said, ‘The noblest art is that of making others happy’ and I try to remember that each day I come to work and also in my personal life. It is my job, and that of my team, to ensure that our residents are living full and happy lives. It’s an honor to do what I do for them every single day.”
