Connie Olson - Windmill Ponds
April 22, 2015
Connie joined the Vista Prairie team six years ago as Director of Health Services at Windmill Ponds in Alexandria, Minnesota. Connie began her work with seniors over 30 years ago with a summer job as housekeeping assistant, returning later as a NAR , then back to school for her LPN and finally her RN degree. Before coming to Vista Prairie, Connie was employed as nurse manager at Good Samaritan in Hoffman Minnesota.
Connie grew up on a farm and continues to enjoy that lifestyle with her husband on their Beef Farm. The wonderful country setting provides a perfect place to entertain and spoil their two lovely grandchildren. Connie has a love of Antique Furniture and hopes to get into refurbishing and restoring old pieces. Most of Connie’s spare time is spent working on their farm or assisting her elderly parents with their needs. However, cruising to a Tropical destination is something she loves!
Being part of a “team” that provides assistance to the residents at Windmill Ponds is very important to Connie. Her days are spent assisting residents with paper work, phone calls and helping them to set up their health services.
