Home Health Aid Assists Elderly Patients

 Gail Beeler works today as a home health aid for Griswold Home Health Care in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She visits elderly patients, caring for them and helping to ensure they can live independently in their own homes. Each day, Gail makes a difference in the lives of others. “I enjoy the different personalities I encounter daily. They share stories about their lives,” she says. “You can see the joy I am able to bring to them.”

 Gail’s career satisfaction came in part with help from Brown Mackie College – Tulsa, where she earned an Associate of Applied Science degree (Medical Assisting) in 2015. “I always knew that I was meant to work in the medical field. It has been my passion since I was just a little girl. Friends and family encouraged me to pursue a medical career, but I have to say that God led me to where I am today,” says Gail.

 Gail sought to change her life after a series of devastating losses. “I lost my mother, my husband, my income, and my home within a 30 day period,” she says. “My world fell apart until I decided to become a student at Brown Mackie College –Tulsa.”

 Dedicated to creating positive change, Gail focused on her work and excelled in the classroom. “The convenience Brown Mackie College –Tulsa offered to me as an adult with a family to care for was a huge factor,” says Gail. “I was amazed at the care and compassion of the staff and instructors. They helped me to press on and not give up.”

 Before graduating, Gail received the Brown Mackie College – Tulsa Inspiration Award, an affirmation of her struggle to overcome adversity. “I am proud of overcoming a very traumatic experience in my past, and being an example to my children by showing them how to face adversity without giving up,” she says.

 Gail maintains friendships and contact with the college. She volunteers her time to help with graduation ceremonies. Also, she volunteers at The Dream Center in Tulsa, helping to feed the homeless and assisting in the clothing department.
