We want to celebrate Valentine's Day this year by sharing one of our
Kirby couples, Kelley and Brian Evans!
Kelley and Brian are both employees with Kirby Medical Center. Kelley started
working as a nurse in the Emergency Department in 2016. Kelley later moved
over to Kirby Medical Group, first as a nurse and now as a nurse practitioner.
Brian started working as a paramedic for Kirby Ambulance in 2017.
Kelley and Brian met while Kelley was an RN in the ER department at a Decatur
hospital and Brian was a paramedic at Decatur Ambulance. Kelley loves
to recount her first memory of Brian- He was bringing a toddler in who
had had a seizure and came into the ER carrying the child in his arms,
talking to her and comforting her. " It was very sweet," Kelley says.
"When we aren't at Kirby, we like to be outside as much as possible.
We ride bicycles as a family frequently in the summer and love hiking
and exploring the trails at Allerton and Lodge Parks with our three kids.
We are passionate about conservation and we are making our dream of owning
a piece of native prairie come true by restoring 11 acres of former pasture
to prairie and oak/hickory savanna.
We both love working and serving the community in which we live. It’s
great to work for a hospital that values community connection and a sense
of family. Kirby is close to home and close to our hearts. "
We are thrilled to have Kelley as one of our Nurse Practitioners and Brian
on our Kirby Ambulance team!
