I’m Malissa O’Brian, the Executive Director of Waldenbrooke Estates.
I am a native Texan and lived on the outskirts of Houston, in Cypress and Katy, until 2015. At that time, my husband and I moved near Brenham with our 17 year old daughter and 10 year old son, to help his parents take care of a large ranch, which was becoming difficult for them to handle on their own, after some health issues.
I began my career in the medical field, working alongside Dr. Red Duke and Life Flight at Memorial Hermann Hospital Emergency Room in the Houston Medical Center. After a few years, I switched gears, and went back into Property Management, where I had been a leasing/sales agent for apartments while I was in school.
I worked through each position until I became a Community Manager, while obtaining my Texas Real Estate License, and was promoted to operate an apartment building for senior citizens. I have been a Regional Property Manager, and a National Marketing and Training Coordinator.
When I had my son in 2006, traveling became difficult. I continued writing training and operations manuals for property management companies, wrote articles for local and national magazines, promoted local authors and worked with businesses to create marketing material and website content.
When my son started school, I wanted to go back to work full time doing something I was passionate about, where I could make a difference…helping others. I found the perfect fit as a Senior Advisor, assisting seniors and their families to find resources in crisis situations and to find permanent living situations for those that were aging or looking for a change. I worked with multiple communities nationwide, coordinating care for patients that were being released from rehab, had dementia, needed assisted living and even those that were just looking for an active senior living lifestyle. I became a Nationally Certified Senior Advisor and have loved helping and getting to know what is important to seniors in all stages of their life.
I am excited to now be here at Waldenbrooke Estates, and look forward to meeting you, if I haven’t already. I’m open to suggestions and new ideas, and will strive to make Waldenbrooke Estates the BEST place for you to call HOME!
