168 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine HEALTH AND WELLNESS While in her youth, Patricia K. Vollbrecht developed a natural proclivity for helping others, and often aided individuals in her community with their problems. During this time, her neighbors advised that she should enter the field of nursing as a career path. Already involved in the education industry as a teacher at the Full God School Mission Christian School, where she served for nearly 20 years, Ms. Vollbrecht often cared for the administrator of the school, who was struggling with health dilemmas. As such, she took on the roles of vice principal then principal of the school prior to the school’s closure. Upon ending her academic career, Ms. Vollbrecht entered her second career as a registered nurse. Receiving an associate degree in applied science from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College in 2006, she became a registered nurse and was certified in CPR in 2008. Since that time, she has excelled as a registered nurse for Inclusa in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Although her career has been filled with highlights, Ms. Vollbrecht is especially proud of working in home hospice care, in which she cared for others with critical illnesses in the comfort of their own homes. Likewise, she is humbled by her empathetic attitude toward her late husband’s family, for whom she cared for 15 years while simultaneously teaching and tending to her 600-acre beef farm. A versatile and compassionate individual, Ms. Vollbrecht has been honored on numerous occasions for her work, including being the recipient of a Certificate of Appreciation for contributions of nursing above and beyond from the Claremont Nursing and Rehab Center. While in college, she also earned several scholarships to enhance her collegiate studies. Looking toward the future, Ms. Vollbrecht intends to continue on her path in nursing and assisting others whenever possible. She notes that she has worked with COVID-19 testing in several capacities. Married to the late Russel Vollbrecht, she enjoys spending quality time with her five children, seven grandsons, two step-granddaughters and six step-grandsons.
