Staff Spotlight: Brad Krehbiel
Brad Krehbiel may be new to Emporia Presbyterian Manor, but he isn’t new to the Presbyterian Manor staff. He joined the Emporia team as the new Environmental Services Director around the end of January, a move he made from about 87 miles up the turnpike.
“I spent the past seven years at Aberdeen Village (a Presbyterian Manor community in Olathe, Kan.) and was the maintenance supervisor there. I had been wanting to move closer to Wichita, that’s where my family is. This spot opened up and was at least half-way there. I jumped on the opportunity,” said Brad.
Just about six weeks into his new position, Brad’s favorite part of the job is the people.
“The staff here are extremely cooperative and pretty much take to heart our mission,” said Brad. “It is so resident-oriented here. I find that very refreshing. I totally enjoy establishing new relationships with residents. I’m still pretty tight with a number of them at Aberdeen Village, we correspond.”
Originally from Olathe, Brad attended Colby Junior College and volunteered a couple of years with the inner-city mission organization World Impact where he built houses in Florence, Kan. and cabins in Lake Hughes, Calif. He and his wife are avid cooks. They have two daughters and two granddaughters.
