Lindy D Brand
Lindy Brand was born and raised in Beaumont, Texas. After high school, she attended Baylor University, and after making not-so-stellar grades her first semester, her parents banished her back home, where they told her that the title “nurse” would be more appropriate than “doctor.” That summer, she made the Dean’s List at Lamar University and soaked up all the humidity she could stand.
She volunteered at her alma mater high school, sponsoring the Anchor Club, volunteered for Young Life, accompanying high school students to Frontier Ranch as counselor, and taught children’s choir at church. She eventually went to work for money at a urology office.
She received her BS in Nursing in 1996 and moved to Austin to work in another Urology office, then jumped at the chance to work in the Operating Room at Seton Medical Center. She became a contract nurse in 2001 and worked in every hospital and surgery center in Austin and the surrounding areas for 10 years.
Thankful for God’s plan (versus her own), she met and married a dashing Anesthesiologist, Jeff, and they now enjoy the craziness of raising their 4 kids (Jeffrey, Haley, Harper, and Matthew) and 3 dogs!
Lindy stays busy volunteering at Anderson High School, staying up on her children’s friends and activities, and working as a part-time OR RN at Northwest Hills Surgical Hospital and Seton Northwest. She definitely found her “niche” in the OR, where her patients are asleep, and she can keep things “light” with humor during stressful situations.
During her down time, she can be found running, eating out, watching Lifetime, spending time with family, traveling, at church, and finding ways to make people laugh. Her favorite personal awards are “Service with a Smile” and “Volunteer of the Year!”
