Human Resource Director John DeBrodie started his career at Fulton Presbyterian Manor two and a half years ago as a floor technician. To say John’s career history has been interesting is an understatement, and his variety of experience makes him great at identifying people’s strengths and employment potential.
“I was a 911 dispatcher after graduating high school. I was with B&B Theatres for eight years at various levels of management (booth and property manager, operations manager, and general manager). I worked for the University of Missouri School of Medicine as a forensic technician, where I assisted with forensic and medical autopsies. While working there, I also worked for a local mortician, where I assisted with embalming and transporting deceased for funerals. I moved to Seattle to pursue music and worked on the docks for about a year, returned home and started working at Presbyterian Manor as a floor technician,” said John.
He’s happy to be in a position where he gets to help people fulfill their personal potential.
“My main duty is finding good people who are good at what they do. That’s my favorite part of the job” said John. “And when I’m not at work, you can find me somewhere comfortable either reading, writing or playing music. In the last two years I’ve been involved with the local stand-up comedy scene either as a performer, promoter, or simply a muse for other comics.”
