kenneth Howard Executive Director
I’ve been in the medical field for almost 30 years now. I started my nursing career as a Corpsman in the United States Navy where I severed 8 years and rose to the rank of Petty Officer 2nd class. I have worked at some of the most prestigious hospitals in the world such as Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland Medical Center and, Bethesda Naval Hospital to name a few. I have worked in various modalities from pediatrics to geriatrics. The senior population is where my heart is. I believe seniors are the most underutilized population in our society. They have been through some of the most trying times in our countries history and have a wealth of knowledge and experience that we should be drawing from and celebrating. I used that passion and experience and opened a personal care home that I ran for 2 years. For the past 2 years, I had the pleasure to serve as the Assisted Living Wellness Director at Oaks at Post Road in Cumming, where I oversaw the care for 65+ residents. I’m thrilled to now be serving as the Executive Director for Oaks at Braselton and look forward to getting to know you and your loved ones.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, exercising, and reading. Some of my favorite books are Some Answered Questions by Bahaullah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha, The Selfless Leader by Cathy McMorris and various authors and, Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.
