Someone You Should Know - Brett Ingersoll

OELWEIN (KWWL) -

"It's something you can wake up and be happy about when you get up in the morning," Brett Ingersoll, manager at Arlington Place in Oelwein, said.

Ingersoll has worked with people in assisted living and memory care for more than three years.

"They know me, they've met my family. My kids come in and they jump around with the residents and they know who they are," Ingersoll said. "It gives them a whole different world of looking at things."

The people who live at Arlington Place don't think Ingersoll's too bad either.

"I think he's great, I really do, but Brett is a businessman and he's a great guy," Hazel Irene Roepke, a resident at Arlington Place, said.

Ingersoll said he's spreading his positivity beyond Arlington Place and into the Oelwein community.

"It's a great community to live in, I push the staff everyday to be a part of those positive changes," Ingersoll said.

Ingersoll is also on the Oelwein Library Board, a member of the Oelwein Area United Way and he's also the 2016 president-elect for the Rotary Club.

He said those are just a few more ways he can help bring positivity to the community.

"Look at the positive side and get up in the morning and do something to make the world a better place, and that's one of those things that got me here is wanting to make a difference and wanting to be proud of what I do," Ingersoll said.

He encourages everyone to be a part of a positive change.

Ingersoll said just helping someone in someway once a day can make a huge difference.
