Vieney Kruegar, LVN, has been a resident in San Saba most of her life. As a high school student here, she was the Salutatorian of her class, a member of the National Honor Society, a band member, and a Varsity cheerleader, as well as involved in many other school activities.
Vieney's husband, Chris, owns his own paintless dent repair business and also serves as a volunteer firefighter. Together, they help with the youth ministry at The Father's House. Vieney and Chris have six children: Timothy, age 4; Destiny, age 14; Devin, age 17; Aaron, age 12; Ashton, age 12; and Madison, age 17.
In addition to all of this, Vieney is a great nurse who takes pride with ensuring our residents' quality of life, comfort and happiness. She is continuously peppy and has a wonderful attitude when it comes to her job, as well as outside of our facility. We at Eventide are fortunate to have Vieney as part of our team!
