Name: Brandon Bailey
Where do you work?: Hendrick Medical Center
What’s your job title/what do you do?: Senior Practice Manager for Hendrick Provider Network. I manage Abilene Cardiology Consultants and Abilene Cardiovascular Surgery.
Where are you from? San Antonio, Texas
If you’re not from Abilene, how long have you lived in the area and what brought you here? My wife and I moved here five years ago so she could pursue her dream of working as a pharmacist for Texas Tech University School of Pharmacy (she’s the real talent of the family).
What is your favorite thing about living in the Big Country? No traffic! It was terrible in San Antonio. I have also enjoyed expanding my family here, growing in Christ at First Baptist Church, and all of my awesome coworkers and staff at Hendrick Medical Center.
What do you do in your free time? Spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy going to the gym, playing indoor soccer, and hunting.
What does being an Abilene Young Professional mean to you? It means integrating my experiences with those of others in the community and being a positive representation of my workplace.
What’s the last book you read or what’s your favorite book? Llama Llama Red Pajama because most of my reading these days is with my kids.
What’s your favorite place to travel to and why? I’ve been going to Rockport, Texas, every summer since I can remember. Many of my cousins go and we catch up with each other over some salt water fishin’. I also go to Angel Fire, New Mexico, every year with my wife’s family. We hike and enjoy some clean mountain air.
What’s something you’re passionate about and why? I’m passionate about my family, their happiness and well-being, and making sure to enjoy every day through all of life’s stress and struggles.
