Allure Of Prophetstown Celebrates Nurses Week (pt.2)


This week the Allure Care Facility in Prophetstown is honoring its nursing staff by recognizing each of them with a short profile and photo during Nurses Week.

Holli Olson

I graduated Sauk Valley Community College LPN class of 2008. I will graduate May 22nd 2021 with my RN degree from Highland Community College in Freeport IL.

I don’t have a favorite memory per say but have been so proud to be on a team that never gives up and wants the best for each and every resident. Team Allure is the most amazing company I have ever worked for. I am truly blessed to be a part of it.

Brandi Cooper

I graduated from Clinton Community College in 2013 with my RN. I wanted to become a nurse to make a difference in people’s lives.

I had worked at this facility when it was Good Sam for 7 years. I started out in housekeeping, took Bobi Jo’s CNA class and stayed at facility as a CNA until I graduated with my RN.

When I came back to Allure in October as DON it truly felt like I was coming home returning to the facility. My favorite memory is seeing how happy they were when they were able to come get their COVID vaccine and seeing others for the first time in many months. Even if it was to get a shot, they were so happy to finally see their friends even if it was just passing by in the hall. Also seeing how happy they all were when the beauticians were finally able to return, they all felt like themselves again!

Melinda Newman

I graduated from Black Hawk College in 2010. I had always wanted to become a Nurse for as long as I can remember.

The fondest memories are working with some people that I have worked with in the past, meeting new people, and the residents. Geriatrics is where my heart is!

Tyra Bray

I graduated in 2010 from Wichita Area Technical College in Wichita Kansas. My grandmother was the reason I became a nurse.

Some of my memories are that a resident loves to hear music on my phone and sings along with the songs that are playing. There is another resident who likes to come up behind you and scare you, they thinks it’s funny! 

Luresha McGinnis

Luresha is an RN and has worked for the facility for since August of 2019. 

Facility director Cherish Lamarche said, “We would like to thank all of nurses for their dedication, love, support and the care they give our residents!!
