Brandi Dinkins, Home Manager
Brandi became an official part of the Cretsinger Care Homes team in March of 2018. However, for over six years prior to that Brandi managed another adult foster care home in partnership with Administrator Renee Kelly. Brandi is compassionate and has already gained the love and trust of both her staff and residents. She already has a strong relationship with many of our community partners and, in fact, brings new resources with her to Cretsinger East. We are excited to have Brandi leading our team at Cretsinger East.
