Brittany Hernandez

Staff Development Coordinator 

Brittany enjoys spending time with her loved ones during family game nights! Brittany’s drive to grow professionally saw her leave The Granville after more than a decade of service to become an LPN. The Granville staff were ecstatic to welcome her back a few years ago as our first on site LPN.

Andrew loves camping in the mountains and being away fm the city. ” I enjoy working at the Granville because everyday I come in , I get to put a smile on several residents faces by repairing or lending a helping hand.
