Hello, and Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.  My name is Patty Reynolds, and I recently accepted the Nursing Home Administrator Position at Mill Valley.

I am originally from Potosi, WI, a small river town with a population of 711.  I moved to Dubuque, Iowa in January of 2021 with my family.  My significant other, Jeff, works for Crescent Electric and our daughter, Lily is in 5th grade.  We also have a dog named Buddy who is a Weimaraner.  He joined our family as a puppy, this past Christmas.  My daughter was excited to become, as she says, his “dog mom.”

In my spare time I enjoy going for walks, hiking, fishing, photography, skiing, being outside, and spending time with friends and family.  In August, I was able to visit Alaska.  This has always been something I wanted to check off my bucket list.  While there, I enjoyed fishing, hiking, exploring a secluded beach on Raspberry Island, and shopping in Kodiak.  Our family loves visiting new places.  My life-long goal is to travel the world (or at least as much of it as possible).

My professional background: I have worked in long-term care for a little over 7 years and have held a Social Work Licensure for 16 years.  I have experience in several leadership roles working with geriatric, teenager, and childhood populations.  I enjoy working with all ages and am super excited to be here.  I cannot wait to meet everyone.  If you walk by my office, please feel free to stop by and say hi.
