Team Member Spotlight: Mandy Waggoner

Updated: Mar 2, 2020

This week's Team Member Spotlight is one of our former RN Case Managers, but is now our newest addition to the Marketing Team, Community Liaison, Mandy Waggoner!

Mandy was born and raised in a rural community north of Ruston called Pea Ridge. She graduated from Ruston High School, then went on to graduate as a Louisiana Tech University Bull Dog, both of which she also played Soft Ball.

Mandy is newly, and happily, married to Brian Waggoner after a romantic get-a-way to Hawaii back in the summer of 2019. 🌸💍

She has two grown children who have both also attended Ruston High School and LA Tech, Chandler & Marissa Ford. Her other "children" include her two rescue dogs: Journey & Wire Brush and she says one day she will own horses again, too. 👩‍👧‍👦🐕🐴 In 2007 Mandy was involved in a horse accident that resulted in two broken arms and after four surgeries to her right arm we have just come to accept that she will always have, what we like to call - her T-Rex arm. 😂 No worries, it doesn't prohibit her from being an awesome nurse, keeping everyone smiling and laughing, and being the bubbly Mandy that we all know and love.

She spent the earliest part of her professional career managing clinics until she finally felt her calling to become an RN, so in 2013, she officially added those initials behind her name. 👩‍🎓👩‍ Mandy has traveled across the country (and lived five different states, including: Minnesota, Iowa, Virginia, Arizona, and Louisiana), she has raised her two children, and has worked hard to get where she is today. So, now, she says she is happily settled back into her roots in Ruston, surrounded by her family, at a company and in a position she loves, and where spends her quiet down time in her new favorite book series, "The Cedar Cove." 🏡❤️
